Staycation Part 2

One thing we like to do is long dog walks across the South Downs, some low hills to our north.  The South Downs stretch some 150 miles from Winchester in the West to Eastbourne in the East.  The South Downs Way is a national trail that is well kept and marked along all of it’s length.  Every so often we decide to walk a little bit more of it.  We park somewhere and walk to a point and then back.  Last week we decided to park at Amberley.  We were parked in the river valley, so walked uphill for about 1 hour up to the road (A29) then back down for lunch at The Bridge pub!

On the way up..
