Look carefully and you’ll see a thin line which is the River Adur, upstream from Shoreham.

In the background is a wonderful pig farm which I really appreciated on a recent trip.

There must be a thousand pigs out in the open and contained by nothing more than a thin electric fence.

They were so inquisitive and come up close to say hello, but I digress.

Here the main focus is a straight track from 10 metres above sea level to 85 metres, in one short section of about 650 (slippery metres).

I thought I’d breeze up, but instead had to stop for a breather, two or three times.

Thankfully, the latter stages up to Truleigh Hill, and on beyond to the Devil’s Dyke are far more to my liking.

The greatest challenge on the way up was my phone, which I didn’t want to hear whilst I’m on holiday.
