11.4 miles Downs Circular with Early Purple Orchids

Having left the Jack & Jill car park and the busy South Downs Way with the speeding cyclists, we descended to the tranquility of the valley below Heathy Brow. What a joy.

Happy Ramblers on this Mid Sussex Ramblers' walk

Approaching The Chattri, there are fine views of jack and Jill windmills.

Great thanks to Stella for spotting these orchids, which I and the rest of us missed whilst munching our lunch at the Chattri.

Note the four windmills in this view that John pointed out to us. There is a fifth, Patcham mill in view in the opposite direction . Please see the previous blog entry below.

View of Cuckfield and Cuckfield church from the base of Wolstonbury Hill. This is the first time that I have used the Leki camera-attachment monopole that Bernard tipped me about. It is good Bernard. Thanks.
Ecstatic walkers approaching the penultimate descent before the quick hop, step and jump up to the windmills.
Thanks John, for spotting these Early Purple Orchids on the approach to Jack and Jill.
