South Downs Way

The 160 Km long South Downs Way National Trail follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs. The sea is nearby and can be seen from parts of the trail. Here is a map with the heights of the route.
Unfortunately the weather was cloudy and rainy as I went, but it didn´t stop us breaking up with the dog for a three days walk with two nights of wild camping :)

St. Mary´s Parish Church, Washington , has a water tap on the church yard.

In the evening of the second day we arrived Chanctonbury Ring, where we put up the tent for the night. On Wikipedia I read that "The Ring is also rumoured to increase fertility in women who sleep underneath the trees for one night." Good I am too old for that ;)

We went on The Monarch´s Way down to Findon where we took the bus to Worthing train station.
