The sharp V-shape of the dry valley known as Devil's Dyke is plain to see in this photo. The valley was created during the last Ice age about 14,000 years ago - compare with SP9515 : Incombe Hole - main sweep of the dry valley which was formed in a similar manner.
Devils Dyke :: TQ2610
Devil's Dyke is a V-shaped valley on the South Downs Way in southern England, near Brighton and Hove. It is part of the Southern England Chalk Formation.

The 300-foot-deep valley was carved by tremendous amounts of water running off the Downs during the last Ice Age when large amounts of snow thawed and the frozen chalk prevented any further absorption; erosion was aided by the freeze-thaw cycle and the valley was deepened by the 'sludging' of the saturated chalk
