Freezing cold outside last week or so – I’m missing the sunshine on the Downs here I reckon… Portrait of a hay bale 🙂
This region is one of the sunniest parts of the UK and is famous for its history, rolling hills, verdant hedgerows, beautiful coastline and romantic landscapes.
There are many public footpaths and bridleways passing through the South Downs, including the Monarch’s Way long distance path, a 625-mile (1,006 km) path that approximates to the escape route taken by King Charles II in 1651 after being defeated in the Battle of Worcester. It runs from Worcester via Bristol and Yeovil to Shoreham, West Sussex, and heads south through Arundel Castle Park and down the High Street, before crossing the River Arun to Warningcamp.
Much of The South Downs is a farmed landscape. Centuries of cultivation and management have shaped the landscape, producing quality food and providing a wide range of habitats.
