….a great quote from Sid at about 3:30pm on Saturday! We’d been walking for about 4 1/2 hours by that point and there was a need to step up the pace to get back whilst the sun was still up!

Where were we? We were walking a 13 1/2 mile circular route starting from Devil’s Dyke near Brighton. Chosen by our friends Nathan and Clare (off walkingworld), we started about 10:45am from the pub at Devil’s Dyke and headed off along the South Downs Way to Beeding Hill car park, there we turned off and crossed many open fields, up and down a few hills in glorious sunshine, although it was freezing most of the time! A few highlights were… the great views, feeding the chickens and ducks, yummy picnic and a well deserved beverage at the end! A lovely walk, and great to get back to some long ones! Here’s a few pics, you’ll find the rest on Flickr.
