Scrapbook ~ Wildlife walks throughout the year
Saturday 21st June 2014
Alfriston - Bishopstone - Seaford - Exceat - Alfriston.
The longest day of the
year and I thought we we might as well take the opportunity to do a long walk. As
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.

countryside code for yourself and please stick to it at all times.
