Patching and beyond
Patching is a quaint village centred along “The Street”. At the top, as the lane climbs towards the South Downs, is the church and beside that the Walnut Tree Cottage.
Take the downland paths around the woodland of Angmering Park and you reach the attractive villages of Wepham and Burpham three miles to the west. Like Patching they lie at the foot of the Downs and are frequented by walkers. The George and Dragon a traditional English country pub set right in the heart of Burpham is worth visiting and is hard to pass by when enjoying a walk to Burpham!
Just across the Arun valley from there is Arundel, a historic market town dominated by the symbolic castle and the rising spire of the cathedral. It offers plenty of craft and antique shops as well as restaurants and tearooms. It’s a great place to wander and just enjoy its hospitality and Arundel Castle, the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk, is definitely worth a visit.
It is a short drive to the coast and both Climping Beach and Littlehampton's West Beach are only a short drive away. Goodwood and Fontwell racecourses are nearby along with the cathedral city of Chichester with its excellent Festival Theatre noted for not only the quality of productions but also the fact many world premieres are featured as well.
