Billingshurst Bluebell Walk

April 2023 Update

The relentless wet weather has made access to the bluebell wood tricky. Wellies or hiking boots are a must, as the paths leading there are thick with mud.

Nature at its best – A sea of blue and green

Mid-April to early May is the perfect time to wander through our local woodlands to see and smell the beautiful carpet of bluebells. By Mid-May, you’ll have missed the peak, so bribe the kids with whatever it takes, get your boots on, and head out for a bluebell walk, as they won’t be around much longer.

How to find the Bluebell Woods

There is a stunning display at the bottom of the village. To help you find the woodland, I’ve included what3words map locations. These provide precise waypoints to help you navigate the route. What3words address refers to an exact 3m x 3m location. You can download the free-to-use location app here.

While you’re walking through the woods, don’t forget to look up and admire the lush green tree canopy. The route is a loop, so you’ll end up back where you started.


There are stairs, stiles and exposed tree roots, so not suitable for visitors with limited mobility or families with buggies. You’ll also cross the Billingshurst bypass (A29), so cross cautiously.

The Par Brook stream has fallen trees dotted along the route. The braver younger members of your family are likely to climb and explore. Ferns cover the east bank, giving the area an almost sub-tropical look.
