Alfriston - Wilmington - Alfriston

After yesterday's deluge while yomping the
Downsman with the Scouts, today's miniscule amble in the sunshine was like a
holiday in a different season. A perfect little autumnal stroll.
We start from the Cathedral of the Downs,
St Andrew's at Alfriston.
One of our target species today was a plant, not an animal. Conkers!
I needed a handful of them for conker fights with the Cubs this week.

A small break for tea and cake at the feet of the
Old man of Wilmington.
The old Yew at Wilmington Church. Still standing after nearly 2000 years.
Hawthorn berries at their best.
Blue and green should never be seen .... yeah, right!
Seeds, nuts and berries everywhere. This is Hornbeam.
The ruins of an old barn made a perfect setting for some afternoon tiffin.
Take the time to read
countryside code for yourself and please stick to it at all times.
