Videos of my walks in and around the South Downs plus other areas.

South Downs Clouds Time Lapse Video

A 70 minute original 4K HD video condensed to 5 minutes time-lapse. Filmed from Springhead Hill in the South Downs National Park, West Sussex, England.


Looking north, overlooking Parham House and Estate. On the distant horizon you can see the North Downs of Surrey and Hampshire, some 19 miles away.

If you look carefully you can see the gliders and tug aircraft taking off and landing at Parham Airfield, to the centre-right of the video.

Clouds form and vanish in the blink of an eye, constantly changing shape.

Storrington Time Lapse Clouds 4K Video.

45 minutes of video condensed to 90 seconds time-lapse. Filmed in 4K HD. Kithurst Hill in the South Downs National Park gives commanding views over the village of Storrington, West Sussex.

This is looking north towards the North Downs of Surrey on the far horizon. Shot on the morning of 6th July 2015.

I wonder how this view will change over the years. Will the beautiful countryside survive the property developers?

Steyning Bowl Time Lapse Videos

Ever since I first walked to Steyning Bowl in the South Downs National Park and admired the view I had wanted to capture the scene on video, as shadows from the clouds raced across the contours of the landscape.

Monarch’s Way – Steyning, West Sussex

I parked my car at Chanctonbury Ring car park and walked east along the South Downs Way until it met a concrete track called Sopers Lane, high above the West Sussex village of Steyning. This farm track forms part of the Monarch’s Way, a 615 mile national trail. Fortunately I was only walking about half a mile of it today.

The South Downs Way path runs along the southern edge of Steyning Bowl, over Annington Hill but I think the views from the Monarch’s Way track are equally impressive;

Video: Kithurst Hill Spring Views

Overlooking the West Sussex village of Storrington is Kithurst Hill, rising to a summit of 213 metres / 699 feet. From close to the South Downs Way there are dramatic views west, north and east. With rolling hills towards the south.

Kithurst Hill, South Downs National Park

There are several steep footpaths leading from Greyfriars Lane, Storrington to the South Downs Way or you can drive up Chantry Lane and park in the stoney car park and walk a short distance west and north.

The main SDW path passes close to the Kithurst Hill view point but doesn’t offer the very best views, for that you need to walk north from the South Downs Way to a parallel path. There is a trig point marked on OS Maps and the view-point is close to that.
