Pulborough circular

Walking around the RSPB reserve at Pulborough Books was thirsty work, so we walked to Pulborough and The White Hart at Stopham bridge for some ale.Click this link for more on Wiggonholt church, which dates from the 13th century.

There are three pubs in or near Pulborough and we walked to all three. The above had a poor selection of bitter ales compared to the other two

The oldest part of St Mary's Church dates from about 1220.
Derek Atwell explained how the font was damaged during the reformation and thrown out into the churchyard. Made of Purbeck marble on a sandstone base, it dates from the 12th century

The beers were excellent in this pub, which is well worth a walk!

Afterwards, the Sportsman pub at Amberley is worth a visit for great views across the Amberley wild brooks , for a good selection of ales and food.
