Fishbourne Circular, 9 July
Train: 8.35 from Victoria station to Fishbourne, Sussex (change from the Southampton bound train at Chichester).
This is a long though v enjoyable day – a journey of at least 1hr 41 minutes each way on the train (£17.15 return from Victoria), and 10 miles’ walk broken up by a short ferry ride after lunch (£3 fare in cash). In order to allow time for a tea break in Bosham prior to return, we need to catch the 8.35 am from Victoria station and then change at Chichester to our destination, Fishbourne arriving 10.16. I would plan to get the 17.30 train home (getting to London after 7pm) so please avoid an early evening engagement.
I would advise taking sandwiches/snacks and plenty of water although the plan is to stop at the West Itchenor pub before the ferry ride. Yesterday, when I did the recce, it was quite hot so a sunhat advised as some of the walk is quite exposed.
