Wolstonbury Hill today
A Comma butterfly caught my eye feeding on bramble flowers.

Marbled Whites and Peacocks were around too but were too elusive to photograph on this day.
The hillside was dotted with these lovely "Pride of Sussex" flowers.
Another abundant plant in full flower was the Greater Knapweed.

Cuckfield Historical Circular walk, 10.7 miles.
The earliest known record is from 1521 and the school was later funded by William Spicer in 1529.
This stone in the church buttress shows the presence of iron in the local stone.
the Jolly Tanners , which is a wonderful pub for real ale drinkers and everyone else too.
My thanks to all fifteen of you who joined this walk and made it a day to remember and a pleasure to lead. For information on other walks that I and my associates lead in Sussex, please click www.peterlovettwalks.eu
