Thanks for visiting.
You can't help but notice the grass covered chalk cliffs high above Lewes beckoning you to find a footpath to the top. There are plenty. Following the steep Chapel Hill not far from the shops on Cliffe High Street, it's not long before you pass the golf course and are high up looking down on the town. The hedgerows on the way up are full of flowering wildflowers to distract you from the steepness plus you can stop frequently 'to admire the views'.
Once up, the footpath veers off over the Downs with plenty more flowers to spot.
This path is heading for Glyndebourne, famous for its operas, performed on a country estate with a delicious picnic too. They have a wind turbine on their land to offset their electricity costs. The path continues down the hill to reach the house but as we reached the top of the hill, a thunderstorm was evident over the village of Ringmer, heading our way. Look at that sky!
