Average property prices in West Sussex rose by 7.8% in the 12 months to the end of November, outpacing the 5.8% growth in the same period last year.

This compares to a rise of 5.2% across the South-East region, over the same period and puts the average house price in West Sussex at £331,255 in November 2017. Particularly strong price growth was seen in the detached and semi-detached sectors, which grew by 8.7% and 8.6% respectively in the 12 months to November on average.

Chris Hounsome, director of Mansell McTaggart, said “this is a good time for anyone thinking about selling, following sustained but manageable price growth over the last few years”.

Jaime Wallden, director, agreed, adding “yet it is also a good time for people who want the reassurance of knowing they are buying into a market where values are rising, and before they rise further”.

Jaime added that “in any market it is also important for sellers to ensure they choose an experienced agent who has a local presence to check the validity of buyers and their offers”.

Everyone loves a pub. Most people love a walk. Put the two together, add in the river Ouse and you have a lovely day out.

A well-known (but not too well-known) walk is to park in Barcombe, head along the river to the pub, then head back along the disused railway line. It’s all flat, only 2 ½ miles long (30-45 mins each way) and a lovely way to spend a day, whatever the weather.

Halfway along, you’ll reach the the Anchor Inn. The food is great (the Anchor burger went down well with my family, as did the ploughman’s), and that atmosphere is gentle and restful. In warmer times, the garden is a lovely spot to enjoy the sunshine, and you can even hire a canoe.

A bit further along the river, I remember a few years ago there being a fantastic swing on a branch over the river. My son and his friend spent a very happy afternoon there, but then again it was August and hot!

But whatever the weather, this is a lovely walk, and a great pub. Enjoy…
