Walk at Goodwood, Lavant area

It was time to do our monthly long dog walk so we got the map out and decided to go over to Goodwood:



We started at the ‘P’ in the top right hand corner, and walked south to East Lavant, and then back up in a big loop.  The walk was 4.5 miles and took about 1.5hours.

We soon met these young bulls!  Merlin had a strop with them and barked at them!

The village of East Lavant is really pretty.  I had to tear Maurice away from a rahter nice looking country pub, but even the tables outside were laid up with white napkins and cutlery – not the sort of place for scruffy old us to go in for a quick pint!  So we sat on a bench at the cricket ground and had our flask of coffee

Walking back up the hill was pretty until we reached a field full of sheep and lambs that we had to cross!  Maurice had to keep a real tight grip on Merlin!

The last bit was along the top and wow what a view!  These pictures don’t so it justice – the first one is looking down towards Chichester, and the second one is looking west towards the Isle of Wight, which rises out of the sea like a great big whale from this angle!
