Travel Tips for Worthing

Clapham Woods - Weird ,Weird ,Weird

by biggeorge

One of the most haunted places in England ,not really recommended after dark ,peoples dogs used to go missing up there.Theres a the ruins of a few cottages and the picture below was found in a disused manor house used by the " friends of hecate " who are a charming little bunch.

Yes, Clapham just north of Worthing on the A27 and is the counties most charming devil worshipping village.
The single oak tree guarding the entrance to the wood and the crater nothing grows in are particular highlights but be carefull! As well as numerous cats and dogs the local vicar vanished in the woods in 1979 and they only found his body three years later.
Dogs also have a habit of foaming at the mouth and running round in circles in particular parts.

Another dubious attraction of the wood is the intersection of 4 footpaths just outside the village itself where a number of dogs have disspaeared and visitors sometimes complain of vertigo and feeling dizzy.

Other interesting things reported include people's being " steered " into the trees while driving along the A27, the fact it was cursed in 1288 by Robert le Faulconer who said " I call upon She who knows to damn this accursed villageand all its meagre holdings, may the preisthood of this false god soon come to know their fate" which was nice of him! Plus a spate of unexplained fires in the 70's and 80's.

Personally the most eerie thing about his wood is that there is very little wildlife and unlike everywhere else on the downs in parts of the wood you don't hear any birds. This and the cases of PC Goldsmith and Leon Foster in 72 and 75 who appeared to have lain down and died in the wood ,not eating for several days before dying means theres not a chance of me ever going up there anytime soon.

However things have been quieter recently so if you fancy scaring the crap out of yourself come on down its an evenings fun for the whole family ( but probably not your pets)

Worthing shopping

"Worthing shopping"

Ok so the Guildbourne centre is a joke but Worthing is a good place for shopping, it has Monsoon, River Island, Topshop, H&M, TX Maxx, New Look, HMV, Next, Bhs, Debenhams, accessories, huge M&S. Lovely cafes down Warwick Street. Award winning beach, while many didn't pass. Wide selection of restaurants. Brand new Swimming complex to be built with designs in place.

This is a lovely coastal town by the sea that is actually steeped with lovely period properties, definitely a town on the up.
Don't judge it by these horrid pics. Will be correcting the balance by adding some more pics of this very pretty town!!

Name another town apart from Brighton of course(which may I just add is a speedy 20 minute train journey away) that offers that much shopping, Horsham has swan walk with hardly any thing for the younger shopper, Bognor, well come on, and Crawley is well lets say slightly "chav"!!

Every town has it's disastrous building which should be smashed to the ground along with the architect that designed it and unfortunately Worthing is no different but despite it’s minor misgivings this is a great place to live and shop.
