The South Downs Way: an epic of endurance!
April to August 2012
The South Downs Way wanders a hundred miles along the south coast of England from Eastbourne westward to Winchester. It’s an easy walk because it runs mostly along the top of the downs. We would do it in four sections, each time travelling by train down from London to the starting point. We reckoned we could complete the whole journey in a few weeks. But there was the British weather to contend with. So it took us four months!
