Centurion Way was once a railway line

Many Years before Centurion Way became a wonderful footpath/cycleway it was the Chichester to Midhurst railway line

The last passenger train was run on the last section of the LB&SC Chichester – Midhurst railway, the gravel line to Hunters Race , in 1981 by heritage railway enthusiasts who were working to take over the line up to Lavant and eventually the line to Midhurst.

They also organised a walk along the line of the railway, as far as possible, from Lavant to Midhurst including the Singleton tunnel with a return journey by open top 1920s bus.
