South Downs: Hassocks to Fulking
Monday 26th August 2019
A fairly randomly planned route today, mainly chosen because I wanted a relatively short train journey and wanted to see what the pub in Fulking was like. It actually turned out to be a very pleasant walk though - despite the heat - and I took in some lesser known paths which turned out to be quite lovely.
