|Malling Down nature reserve, Lewes, Sussex|
It's quite a steep walk but worth every moment! The views across the Sussex Weald are magnificent

Malling down is a nature reserve renowned at this time of year for it's wild flowers and butterflies. I wasn't too sure what to expect but as I approached the steep slopes of the coombe the area became increasingly more colourful with the vast array of flowers and grasses. I spent quite a while here just taking it all in and watching hundreds of Marbled White butterflies dance among the flower heads.
This is also a great place to get a good view of Lewes town nestled among the South Downs.
