The Cathedral Quadrant

Dominated by the Norman Cathedral, its surrounding grounds and historic buildings, this is probably the most picturesque quadrant.

The Cathedral Quadrant

We pick up the City Walls Trail near the end of South Street. An alleyway (known as Deanery Farm Lane) leads to a red brick footbridge.

From here the gravel footpath alongside the River Lavant offers fine views of the City Walls and the Cathedral. The path, or the grassed open space next to the wall, can be followed as far as the Avenue de Chartres.

A detour into the Bishop's Palace Gardens offers a tranquil space with a splendid variety of trees and plants. The rampart of the City Walls, including one of the few surviving Roman bastions, provides exceptional views.

The City Walls Trail continues along the Avenue de Chartres to the end of West Street, site of the former Roman gateway.
