The next stop on the road running along the foot of the South Downs was Fulking, a small picturesque little village, consisting mainly of houses and farm buildings.
Particularly noticeable is the need for car ownership here, parked cars lined both sides of the road and a quick glance at the bus stop revealed one of the possible reasons for this.
The village receives only two buses a week, passing through on its way from Midhurst to Brighton and back again ever Monday. Assuming that they don’t run on bank holidays that means less than a hundred buses a year pass this way.
One wonders if it gets much use. Anyone out walking this way and hoping to catch a bus home will likely have a long wait.
Makes me feel quite fortunate to have an hourly bus service but a few steps away from my front door.
