This is a linear walk across the Cowdray estate combining all the ingredients that make a perfect summer’s day in the Western Weald.

We will start by walking across the fields to catch the No.1 bus from the Half Way Bridge to Easebourne, outside Midhurst. From here we will weave our way back to the brewery following a route south of the river Rother, past Cowdray’s polo grounds at the Lawns and Ambersham. Depending on the programme of play (there are a number of scheduled games/tournaments that weekend), there might be an opportunity to stop and watch a chukka or two at Ambersham from the footpath that runs parallel to the pitch. The brewery courtyard will then provide a welcoming location for our end of walk picnic (or pizza, should you prefer) and pint. Lesley, the friendly face of Langham Brewery, recommends either the German Pils Lager Lodsteiner (4.2) or Session IPA (3.8) as the perfect beers to accompany this summer walk.

Please note the bus fare will be £2 per person (unless you have a bus pass)

PS….If you love craft ale and would like to understand a little more about how it’s done, Langham offer a guided tour and tasting of their 10 barrel steam-heated brewery. You can find out more here. Also, for the budding brewer or beer connoisseur there is a Brew Day Experience
