"Peter Owen-Jones takes us into heart of the UK's newest national park - the South Downs. Following the South Downs Way along the spine of the park, from the famous Seven Sisters Cliffs to Winchester - the ancient capital of England - Peter experiences an extraordinary year exploring the park's stunning landscapes, rich history, wildlife and people. What emerges is a portrait of one of Britain's most iconic landscapes, described by William Blake as 'England's mountains green'. "

I like Peter Owen-Jones, a true eccentric - am sure this will be worth a look "Starting at the eastern end by Seven Sisters cliffs, he covers a lot of ground, both literally and figuratively, as his walk along the 100 miles of South Downs sees him touch on the area's amazing biodiversity, its ancient history, geology and the people who work on its slopes"
