Christopher Somerville, travel writer and keen rambler.The Fox Goes Free and Charlton has long been known for fantastic walks and scenery. An article in The Times (Saturday 3rd of May 2014) by keen rambler and travel writer Christopher Somerville comments;
“The Fox Goes Free at deep-sunk Charlton is one of my favourite Sussex pubs especially when it’s warm enough to sit in the garden with a pie and a pint, looking out across the flint wall and over the grazing sheep in the meadow beyond to the double swell of Levin Down and North Down.”
