“BLOW AWAY THE COBWEBS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

An area of natural beauty, have walked parts of it many times and also good for mountain bikers. Beautiful views from the top at any time of year and also fun to visit the Jack & Jill windmills, one of which is a museum to keep the tradition alive.

“Natural beauty, quiet and great for a bike ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have ventured on the south downs for bike rides and believe me there is nothing more relaxing than reaching the top of a hill and taking in the silence.

Free and great for most abilities for mountain bike adventure.
