South Downs, Devil’s Dyke

We haven’t done a long walk in a whole month and the weather oracle that is the BBC said it would be sunny today so off we went. Several trains later, we got to Fishersgate and made our way across South Downs to Devil’s Dyke. The weather was perfect, the expanse of the blue sky and the rolling hills just so life affirming. It was good to be out.

Fields and hills on one side, hills, fields and the sea on the other. We stopped at the Devil’s Dyke pub for a couple of pints and a late lunch then made our way back to Portslade and trains back – walked just over 10 miles in total and the last 4 miles in an hour, just managing to catch the Brighton train. All together just glorious but legs a bit stiff now… Oh well, glad we finally have some fabulous spring weather.
