Descent of Littleton Down
Descent of Littleton Down
Here, the line of the South Downs Way has been left as a narrow track through a field of barley - the ears of the ripening crop are just about at knee-height when descending on a bike, leaving you with the not unpleasant feeling at the bottom that you've been lightly whipped on the legs for the last few hundred yards.
South Downs Way

The South Downs Way is a long distance footpath in Southern England and is one of Britain's National Trails. It runs for around 100 miles from Winchester in Hampshire to Eastbourne in Sussex, with a small loop around Eastbourne. The South Downs Way passes through the South Downs, a beautiful area which is now a National Park. The path mainly follows old routes and droveways along the Chalk escarpment. The majority of the path is a bridleway and so can be used by horse-riders and cyclists too.
