The South Downs Way
John Hillaby uses the South Downs as a springboard, a practice-ground for his longer walks abroad. Over miles of glorious Sussex countryside we follow the track of one of the oldest highways in Britain.
From Harting to Beachy Head, Hillaby shows us the delights of open country, orchid-strewn forests; picturesque villages and smugglers' haunts. We share his observations as a naturalist; his recounting of local tales and superstitions; his blisters and his beer.
