|Blackcap on the South Downs|
At last we have some good weather days to be able to go exploring again.
I chose a good clear day and decided I would take a walk along the South Downs just west of Lewes.
Starting at Offham I headed west over Mount Harry and on to Blackcap, at 676ft this was a very steep walk!
It was all worth it as the views were stunning. You get glimpses through the valleys of the coast to the south and wonderful panoramic views of the Sussex Weald to the north.
At the top is a small wooded area planted to commemorate the Queen's coronation...

It was the part I enjoyed the most.
A well walked chalk path twisting and turning down the steep slopes of the South Downs as if it would go on forever!

Views of the Sussex Weald, rape crops and the chalk path...Spring has definitely arrived!
