We went to walk a little of the South Downs Way. I say a little, we only had an hour as it gets dark early now and we went after lunch. The South Downs Way runs along the top of the South Downs from Winchester to Eastbourne. You will recollect Miss 22 had an adventure in Winchester recently here. It is apparently the first capital of England.
Last Sunday we started at the Clayton Mills. About the mills here . We parked near the working mill, Jill. It is possible to tour this working mill and buy milled flour from here, complete with millstone grit.

|There's always one!|
The South Downs are chalky, think white cliffs of Dover and Beachy Head. Beachy Head is at the Eastbourne end of the South Downs Way.
