I was joined by Karen for today’s 6?? mile walk with 950ft of ascent starting from the viewpoint high on the South Downs adjacent to Devils Dyke. This is the deepest dry valley in the world and it may sound like something of an exaggeration, particularly as the bottom of the dyke was only some 200ft below our path along the ridge. We then visited three small villages at the foot of the downs which included the interestingly named “Fulking”.
A steep climb of 300ft took us back up to the South Downs ridge to walk the 2 miles or so back to the car. We then went into Littlehampton for tea & scones taken by the riverside. It was certainly far busier than when I was there early on Friday morning.
