 Paul's walk to The Royal Oak at Hooksway, start point to be advised. 

John Russell, the oldest son of Bertrand Russell (who lived at nearby Telegraph House), as a boy walked down to the pub (the Royal Oak) to escape from the pressure of the high expectations that his philosopher father had for him. When ‘called-up’ for military service he was a ‘Bevan boy’, becoming a coal miner. This undermined his already delicate health, and he convalesced for quite some time with Alf and Carrie, who treated him like the son they never had. (thanks to www.chichestersociety.org.uk}
