Arundel Park and River Arun Walk


This walk shows the beauty of Swanbourne Lake, which dates back to the Domesday Book and which used to provide the supply of water to the mill. The lake and mill was the last major painting by Constable in 1837, entitled 'Arundel Mill and Castle'. Rowing boats are normally available for hire in season. The walk through part of the 1,240-acre park gives you an insight into its particular beauty. The section of the walk from Waymarks 3 to 12 follows the route of the Monarch's Way which, at 615 miles, is the second longest waymarked walking trail in Britain. It follows the flight of Charles II after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. When the River Arun is reached, excellent views across North Stoke, Houghton and Amberley can be had, tracing the course of the river as it winds its way through the wide valley in the South Downs, along which passes the famous South Downs Way. This particular walk can easily be completed in a morning, giving you time to explore either the beautiful town of Arundel or its superb castle - not to be missed.  The excellent Wildfowl and Wetland Reserve is almost opposite the main park entrance. Refreshments can be obtained at the park entrance and at the Black Rabbit pub, which is in a most picturesque setting on the banks of the river, near the end of the walk.
