|Mount Caburn, Lewes, Sussex|
At 480ft it is an isolated peak with an iron age fort at the top.
It is a National Nature Reserve with an abundance of beautiful wild flowers.
My walk took me through pretty wild orchids and scented meadow sweet swaying gently with the delicate grasses in the warm Summer breeze.
It was a perfect day of blue skies and sunshine with superb views over the Sussex Weald.
Westwards takes you to Glynde and along past Firle Beacon on the South Downs

The River Ouse leaves Lewes and meanders down the valley past the picturesque villages of Rodmell, Southease and Piddinghoe, finally reaching the sea at Newhaven in the far distance.
As a young child I lived on farms in this area and enjoyed walks along the riverbank as much as I do today.
