Alfriston - Bishopstone - Seaford - Exceat - Alfriston.
15 miles

The longest day of the year and I thought we we might as well take the opportunity to do a long walk. As last week's hike was along the Seven Sisters it seemed like a good idea to go via Seaford Head to get a view of the cliffs. It was forecast to be a hot sunny day and the weatherman didn't disappoint as it was about 23 degrees all day. The ride down there through Ashdown Forest was a real pleasure although there was a lot of traffic on the roads, much of which seemed to be driven by people who were half asleep or possibly on the phone!
This was a superb walk on a perfect day and the only places where there were lots of people were in Seaford and over Seaford Head. The rest of the time we were virtually alone. The area of downs between Alfriston and Seaford Golf Club is excellent with flower-rich meadows and views for miles.
