Angmering Park Estate
> Area Guide <
Angmering Park Estate, which falls within the South Downs National Park, is characterised by lush, deer-filled woods and sweeping downland views, and is particularly loved for its magnificent bluebell displays in spring.
The estate is privately owned but there are numerous public footpaths and bridleways weaving through the whole area, making it a perfect spot for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
Points of Interest
The main draw for Angmering Park Estate is simply the landscape itself, a mix of pristine forests - carpeted with bluebells in spring; ablaze with colour in autumn - interspersed with beautiful swathes of open downland and farmland dotted with sheep. Specific points of interest include the following...
Angmering Park Stud Farm
The buildings and manicured lawns of Angmering Park Stud Farm are an impressive sight, and there is a public footpath which takes you right through the grounds.
Winding down through a scenic valley on the north-western edge of Angmering Park, The Gallops itself is a private bridleway, but a footpath runs parallel, offering magnificent views throughout.
The highest point on the estate, the summit of Barpham Hill has stunning views of the local area, with the rolling South Downs to the north, the Arun Valley to the west, and the shimmering coastline to the south. A footpath runs over it.
Running along an escarpment between Upper and Lower Barpham, Windy Ridge connects Angmering Woods with the rolling hills of the South Downs, and is one of the best footpaths in Sussex, with incredible views all the way along.
How to Get There From Angmering
Angmering Park Estate is located directly north of Angmering Village and easy to reach on foot. Either walk up Arundel Road and cross over the A27 or, for a safer option, go up Dappers Lane, which has an underpass. Both routes are about a mile from the village centre.
There are two free parking areas if travelling by car. One is at the end of Dover Lane: join the A27 and double back at the Poling turnoff, then turn left. The other is at the top of Blakehurst Lane - turn right off the A27 using the second slip lane opposite the Poling turn-off.
