Trees have appeared and dense undergrowth- once kept under control by rabbits- has replaced the open spaces of the last century but the view remains superb. There above the village of South Harting lies the two hills which form the Devil's Spoon. They have lain...More

A lovely walk with great views and high winds that will blow the cobwebs out, at no mistake! Worth the heaving breathing to get to the highest view (and the feeling of total lack of fitness watching young children run laughing past you!)

As with much of the walking along the South Downs Way, the walking here is relatively easy with pretty good underfoot conditions and few tough ascents or descents. This allows you plenty of opportunity to appreciate the great views and spot the abundant wildlife.

A perfect place for a winter walk on a fine afternoon. Walked off a good lunch by climbing the steep slope to the Beacon-- well worth the effort.
