After strong Americano coffees we left the Youth Hostel, and got in a muddle.

So we crossed the busy A26 and went the wrong way into a field before rejoining the correct route up Itford Hill.

I didn’t know this flower, but Roz advised me it’s a mallow.  Latin name Malva Sylvestris.  Something like an oversized Red Campion.

Maybe I need my eyes tested, but it wasn’t until I took this photo that I spotted  pretty wooden bridge that we should have taken to avoid the dangerous crossing.
