South Downs

This view is looking from West Hill cemetary across to the South Downs, with the spire of St Thomas' Church. The South Downs recently became a national park in April and stretches from Winchester to Eastbourne.

  1. A lovely view and the spire really makes it. I didn't know there was a new national park being created- so thanks for an educating post!

  2. Like Chrissy this new national park was created with no one telling me! It covers a beautiful part of the country and it is on your doorstep, well close anyway.

  6. Yes, there was a lot of debate about who would be in and who would be outside the boundary of the new national park. I am outside and happy just to have the view of the south downs.

  9. This looks like a painting! So pretty! I wonder if anyone has ever painted this scene? It looks so familiar!
