STAGE 4 Overview

An easy section with gentle inclines. The route initailly winds around the secluded Vann Lake and on through pleasant countryside and after a short while passes into West Sussex and then through Warnham Deer Park (many red deer!) before reaching Horsham, which was an unexpected pleasure, with its very pretty historic centre.

Route details

The route is straight onto footpaths from the station, then road and tracks to Vann Lake. The subsequent woodland can be muddy. Then a mixture of paths and quiet roads to the suburban streets of Horsham.
