Trevor:- It was a warm and humid morning as we set off from Hill Barn cp making our
way east to soon catch the iconic view of the coastguards’ cottages with
the Seven Sisters beyond. Turning inland to reach the Cuckmere Inn our group
had swollen by one from 10 to 11. We continued alongside the Cuckmere
River then up and over open access land to Friston. Our first stop at Friston
Hill was welcome as the temperature began to rise. Continuing north we soon
hit the Wealdway which would eventually take us past Folkington and then
below the Long Man of Wilmington. Picking up the SDW we headed into Alfriston
for a well earned lunch. Two of the group left at this stage only to be
replaced by two new faces. Black clouds were gathering but our route up out
of Alfriston seemed to take us away from the dark skies. However, we
could see rain in the distance and the air was cooler now. Following the climb
up to Cradle Hill we could soon see our final destination ahead on the
hillside. Everyone agreed it had been a great walk.
