Off the beaten path Woolbeding Common, South Downs in search of a viewpoint

Hiking the Woolbeding Common area was an extraordinary experience. Tucked away and almost hidden in the tranquil Rother valley of West Sussex deep in the South Downs National Park, this was one micro-adventure which deserved my impromptu attention!

The hike off the beaten path was not long, about 2 miles / 3 km, but it opened up my eyes to some stunning, hidden places. This secluded wilderness is not the easiest to find, but when you do, spend time and absorb it fully.
