Chantry Post- Blackpatch Hill- Myrtle Grove- Harrow Hill- Chantry Post. A pleasant 5.5 mile walk on a sunny, clear winter day. Went up NW side from TQ092100, along a thin trod; down from HP directly to bridleway. There is permissive access from TQ092100 to a patch of countryside stewardship but not the summit. The Angerming estate discourage trespass; signs to that effect at Chantry Post. Good views E from top.pwheeler02/12/2019
SOLO. Made use of the long-stay car park in Storrington (free only on Sundays). Took Monastery lane and then the footpath past Kithurst farm into the woods. Up the hill and then onto the trig point. Along to Chantry Hill and then on to Blackpatch hill via corn fields and footpaths. Cracking views from the top of Blackpatch Hill. There is still a fenced off area which is apparently for a model plane flying club. Off down to Myrtle Grove farm and round to Harrow Hill. Through fields of goats and Lllamas before heading back to Kithurst and down via Chantry hill. Plenty of wildlife around: kites and hares. I should have paid more attention to the time whilst admiring the sunset from Kithurst as my last 30 minutes of descent was made more challenging in the dark!Buck13/10/2019
Amberley - Barpham Hill - Harrow Hill - Blackpatch Hill - Church Hill - Highdown Hill - Goring-on-Sea.Mark Jackson14/09/2019
Up through farm and stables then into field and up to trig. Fenced off area still present but unsure of it's significance.Dugswell221/03/2019

A continuation of a walk from Kithurst Hill via corn fields and footpaths: onto top with its roped-off area, keeps us guessing I suppose! Really good views to the IOW today as well as Surrey Hills to the north; vibrant early-evening colours made this a walk well worth doing.JOHNS06/08/2016
As Jonglew reports there is an odd cricket pitch area next to top which is surrounded by electric fencing. Not big enough for cricket and no cut strip for wicket but what else can explain it? Top is just 5 mins off tracktrimarc215/06/2016
Parked at N end of Longfurlong Lane. RoW mostly, then out onto sheep pasture. HP a little S of trig pillar in fenced-off 'cricket pitch'.jonglew15/03/2016

On a sunny May evening from south, after rain giving fresh sparkling views of the green Downs.In 1922, John Pull a victim of a WW1 gas attack discovered here one of the very few Stone Age settlements in England. John Pull wasn't an archeologist but a gramaphone salesman and his work was sneered at and lost and the site was bulldozed - Time Team conducted a dig here to to reassess his work and found ... nothing conclusive in the time devotedChris Pearson15/05/2015
