Sussex Scrapbook ~ Wildlife walks throughout the year
Green Man
Saturday 2nd July 2011
Plumpton Station - East Chiltington - Streat - Ditchling - Ditchling Beacon - Blackcap - Lewes.
11 and a bit miles.

Our previous walks in this area have been planned with hill walking on the Downs in mind, which of course is great, but which meant that the churches at Ditchling and Streat were always shut by the time we got there. Today things would be different as we were going to visit these villages first and have an evening finish to our walk up on the downs.
As Robbie Burns so eloquently put it, "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men, gang aft agley". Things went agley (awry) for us straight away as Streat church was locked and Ditchling church had a wedding on. So that was that then! All we had left to entertain us was; brilliant sunshine, unbelievable views, animals, birds insects and flowers. We suppose that will have to do!

The first team of hikers through weren't hungry or tired, the second were a bit hungry and ate their lunch.
The third were tired, hungry and had already eaten their lunch!
