Some spring walks in Sussex
« on: 18:55:40, 06/06/17 »
A few photos from some of my walks in Sussex this spring

Wild flowers on the cliffs at Brighton Marina



The next two are on the South Downs near Brighton





Southease Church on the South Downs Way



Woolbeding Parkland near Midhurst



A lane near Halfway Bridge, between Midhurst and Petworth



Bluebell woodlands on the High Weald Landscape Trail near Mott's Mill



Woolly friends near Eridge in the High Weald




Thanks for looking     :)

Really lovely photos capturing the real atmosphere of Sussex (coast, Downs and Weald).  And the interesting round tower of Southease church, that's one of my favourite spots on the South Downs Way, such an unusual style.


Thanks

Many thanks, John.  It's interesting that the only churches in Sussex with a round tower  -  Southease, Piddinghoe and St Michael's, Lewes  -   are all in the Ouse valley.

Rather be walking

Hi, Dovegirl. Wonderful photos. Interesting about the round church towers. I've never notice before, but now thinking. :)

Lovely pictures, Dovegirl - those wildflowers in the first one are beautiful! And I particularly like the solitary sheep surveying the rest of the flock too...  :) O0

Bluebells for me too  :) , although the others are lovely.


Interesting to see the round tower on the church.  I always thought they were unique to North Norfolk but clearly not - I learn something every day

Many thanks, April and werringtonwalker     :)    The Sussex Weald has a lot of woodlands so it's good for bluebells    :)
