Kent and Sussex Shoreline Walk

Walk 30 – East Worthing to Ferring, Sussex

Perfect! The tides are right and I'm walking in deep blue sunshine. Sliding over pebbles, part 30 of my Kent & Sussex shoreline walks is underway.

The town of Worthing, Sussex is protected by an army of groynes but these are soon exposed and left naked by the receding tide, revealing a rock strewn sandy beach.

As I pass under the wrought iron work of Worthing pier, it's great to see this Grade II listed building bedecked with visitors. Shame the steam ships have long gone.

Surprisingly warm for half-term, locals are out walking dogs, horse riding, digging for bait, while some kids wished they were back in front of the TV.

Passing open ground I reach my destination, the small village of Ferring. Returning by pathway there is still plenty to see; beach huts, local fishmongers, Jolly Rogers…

On this walk…
