South Downs Way – To the Big V above Streat

I am continuing my walk along the South Downs Way – this stretch commences from Ditchling Beacon and gets to the big V n the northern slope.

I am joined by the lovely Julia Hartley and Kevin Hall.

In 1887 the country was celebrating Queen Victoria’s silver jubilee. Ten years later, her diamond jubilee followed. In Streat, in East Sussex, rather than build a clock tower or put up a bench somewhere, the villagers came up with a novel idea.

I made another video about the big V here:
