The South Downs Way: a photographic journey

Devil's Dyke, in East Sussex, is the World's largest, deepest dry valley. It is owned by the National Trust and comprises 200 acres of Downland scarp, deeply incised by a dry valley. It also has an element of scrub and a lower woodland fringe.
Devils Dyke is at the heart of a larger National Trust Estate of 667 hectares (1648 acres) which has been acquired on an ad hoc basis between 1936 and the current time. It extends along the ridge of the South Downs for 7 kilometers.
