Although I have done this walk a couple of times I always like to make sure there are no unexpected obstacles before leading a walk. It wasn't a pleasant day, in fact it was pouring down. The snow has now melted in the SE of the UK but that leaves a lot of water that has still not drained away, so I was prepared for a very muddy walk.
Steps had been embedded into the path to help people up this incline. I counted 145!! A bit of a challenge for the legs.
The walk takes you through a farm.
Just look at the mud. Going up the last hill I kept slipping back down. I had to leave the pathway and find another way up with better traction. How I didn't fall I have no idea but at least it would have been a soft landing.
Coming back down from the Downs I can see the village below.
