South Midweek Walk 2022 - Littlehampton Climping Circular
4 people attending
8 places left
Join Justin and Matt as we explore Climping Beach, a quieter area of coastline than its neighbours of Littlehampton and Bognor Regis. Much of the area is now designated of scientific interest, and parts are a nature reserve. Many sections of the sand dunes are now fenced off to protect against erosion and help local species to thrive. In the dunes in the summer, the lesser spotted nudist can be found hiding amongst the long grasses. It late May we should be saved any blushes.
The actual beach is exposed and struggles with coastal erosion and can change its appearance between visits. A great place to base a coastal walk as at high tide there is pebble and grass banks whilst at low tide flat hard compact sand of the beach.
The event will close at 18.00 on the day of the walk and you will be unable to register or take yourself off the event after this time. We will finish back at the Railway Station
We will stop at either the Arun View or The Steam Packet depending on availability.
