Footpaths and cycleways

There are many footpaths in Warnham, most well used and clearly marked, covering the whole parish.

The Warnham Society, with the financial support of the parish council, have produced a map of the footpaths in the village.  A copy can be downloaded here.

The Parish also has many lovely Cycle Routes, a copy of the map and be found here.

Whilst walking the footpaths please do bear in mind that they are located on acquired land and or near to neighbouring properties. Please do be respectful of other people and the surrounding areas.

Maintenance of the footpaths is the responsibility of West Sussex County Council. If you find a problem with a path, report it to the Rights of Way Officer at WSCC.  Currently this is:

Walking in Sussex

John Harris’ website, “Walking in Sussex” (, has hundreds of walks available for free download and printing. It also includes a list of books of walks and contact details for all of the walking groups in the county.

Whenever you report problems with any footpaths please give and much detail as possible including, location of the path, official path number and where the problem occurs.

With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy (, one for each county in England so, home or away, you should be able to find a suitable walk!

Footpath walks are organised most months by Horsham District Council. Details are available in the Warnham Warbler.

The walks last about 2 hours and are taken at a reasonable pace so are suitable for most members of the family – well behaved dogs are welcome but please bring a lead as farmers keep livestock in their fields!  Please be a responsible dog owner – dog waste bins are provided at several points in the village.
