My take on all that's of interest about the Sussex South Downs ... as well as updates on the South Downs National Park, controversial housing developments in this area, Spring and Summer festivals and fairs and more, there is also useful info on accommodation, what's on in Sussex, outdoor activities and family days out, exhibitions, museums, concerts and much more.

Watch out for updates ...
