The South Downs is predominantly working farmland

Caption - The South Downs is predominantly working farmland. This was a large herd of cattle being moved at a decent pace with runners at the front and back of the herd opening and closing the gates.The driver of the 4WD was 'calling' the cattle. Obviously he had more breath than the runners!

South Downs

The South Downs is Britain's newest National Park and stretches from Winchester to Beachy Head. Steeped in history there are ancient hill-forts, barrows, a Roman road and deserted medieval villages. The area has a rich diversity of natural habitats including flower-studded chalk grassland, ancient woodland, flood meadow, lowland heath and the particularly rare chalk heathland. This varied environment provides an excellent basis for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, such as walking, cycling and horse riding. More Information
