Day 217 – 5th August – A New Path

Day 217 20180805

Having finished the South Downs Way last week I would need a new path to walk. I’m lucky that living where are do there are a number of national trails that I could follow. I’ve discovered a number of them while planning the walks I have done and look forward to following parts of them, if not all over the remainder of the year and beyond. I’ve picked a route that links two trails and as the name suggests, it links the South Down and the North Downs. Lots of it follows an old train line so is flatter than what I’ve been walking, and is also more shaded. Unfortunately as it’s not a well known, some of the tracks off it will be more challenging and I’ve already discovered that my legs seem to be a magnet for stinging nettles. However I’ll be seeing new areas of the south for a few weeks while I contemplate my next step (quite literally!)
