Begin your walk at East Head. A walk around East Head (1 mile/1.6km) takes around 45 minutes. Stroll along the shore, through the dunes and back along the salt marsh path to experience all that East Head has to offer.

Stop at the northern end of East Head for a fantastic view of Chichester Harbour.

Stroll through the dunes and back along the saltmarsh path, back to the entrance to East Head.

East Head to Snowhill Creek. At the entrance to East Head, with East Head now behind you, the footpath to Snowhill Creek is on your left and runs north-east, following the hedge line at the edge of the salt marsh. Use the top path as the lower path, which is tempting at low tide, hides some very soft clay and should be avoided.

Snowhill Creek to Elleanor Lane. At Snowhill creek follow the line of the harbour, taking the sign posted footpath that continues north off the creek, through a small wooded and sheltered section

From the bird hide the path turns east and becomes more sheltered as wind-sculpted trees create a leafy tunnel.

When you get to a gate and footpath sign you are at Ellanore Lane. Turn right onto Ellanore Lane, which has a firm gravelled surface, leading to West Wittering village. Follow the lane for ½ mile (800m), passing the allotments before you emerge into the village.

As you emerge into West Wittering at the end of Ellanore Lane there is a great little café, the Landing, which is on your left,overlooking a small green at the entrance to West Wittering Estate.

Turning immediately right out of Ellanore Lane, walk a short distance before turning right again into Roman Landings. The footpath is on your left, and leads through horse fields and back onto Snowhill creek.

From Snowhill creek retrace your steps along number 1 footpath back to East Head.
