This is on the west side of the River Adur just over 2 miles north of the A27 and 1.5 miles south of Steyning. Walkers arriving here will cross the river on the South Downs Way and turn left on reaching the road. The church is on the east side of this road. Those arriving by road will either take the Annington Road out of Steyning or take the Coombes Road turning off the A27 (opposite Shoreham Airport turning and next to the Sussex Pad Hotel).

Refreshments will be on sale at the Church on both days.
Parking. There is a field car park (not the Church cemetery car park), but walkers and riders must ensure their prompt return after finishing as the field needs to be secured.
