The Amberley Amble, Saturday 26th September 2020
6 walkers, 22.6 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
A glorious early autumn day with bright sunshine and a crisp wind on the ridges. To the east and south of Amberley there is a vast network of footpaths and our trail used many of them and also a few new ones which we created en route. To the west was Butser Hill, south was the sea, north an array of small villages and towns and above our heads, gliders which we could almost touch as they circled over Chantry Hill where we had lunch. We were in the hills all day; no houses, few people and just one farm at Myrtle Grove where we seemed to be walking through a dog training course. The final section on the South Downs Way from Chantry Post was a fitting climax.
