South Downs Weather Photos

I’ve been walking Dave my Border Collie puppy around the fields of West Sussex most evenings, as a result I’ve seen some lovely sunsets and weather.

I thought I would share some of my June and July “weather” photos with you on this blog post. Hope you enjoy them.

South Downs Weather and Sunsets

  1. Hello Malcom,
    We are arriving in Brighton in August (coming from Canada) and plan to walk from Brighton to Woodmancote (outside Chichester). Since South Downs is your stomping ground (your pictures are beautiful), I though you could provide us with some pointers for the most scenic route. We have allocated 3-4 days for this walk.
    Thank you for your help.
    Kind regards,
    P.S.: the maximum we like to walk is 20 km per day (did the Camino last year, we feel this is our comfort zone, we are 65.)

    1. Hello Susanne, thank you for getting in touch. The South Downs Way trail is itself very scenic and provides some stunning views across the landscape. Many of my walks involved leaving the main trail and walking the many footpaths that lead from the main SDW (South Downs Way). Though as these walks were often circular they would in fact delay your progress.

      The most obvious route is to follow the well signposted South Downs Way trail and if time allows you can walk off the trail into the many charming villages along the way, such as Steyning, Amberley, Bignor. By walking the South Downs Way you will pass very close to lots of interesting places, such as the Roman Road of Stane Street and Chanctonbury Ring (Iron Age hill fort).

      A good quality map of the route will give you ample information and allow you to plan your walk well, best of luck.
