Whenever we walk into town we do so in the shadow of a substantially large hill and for about six months the boyfriend has joked about when we would be climbing it. We do have a lot of these silly jokes, but the other weekend we decided to actually have a go and climb the hill.
The first set was to find out if it was even possible, but luckily it turned out there were plenty of public footpaths to choose from. Once at the top you could even join the South Downs Way. So we wrote down a couple of directions and set off.
We were out for about four hours and think we walked about six miles, as well as stopping for a picnic and for me to take lots of pictures! The view from the top was absolutely amazing and looking in the other direction you could even see the sea. We saw bluebells, friendly looking cows and some gorgeous country houses.
I’m so glad we challenged ourselves to do something different and from the way my legs ached the next day it was very good exercise too!
