Images from the Sussex South Downs


These images were all taken either on the Sussex South Downs, or in and around the village of Ditchling between 2007 and 2010. The first was 'grabbed' from the BBC Television documentary series, 'A Very English Village', filmed and directed by Luke Holland. All photos taken by Luke Holland.

Sussex Long Dog on snowy downs



You may have noticed that our family dog, 'Beau' features fairly regularly in this site; he joined us a few years ago from a local pet rescue centre. He's great company on the Downs, because he's a 'Sussex Long Dog' - a real pedigree 'Lurcher' - part Greyhound, part Saluki, so he runs like the wind.




Beau recently met his match on the Downs in a slightly larger, female, version of himself ...
