Bill Bryson gives a glorious thumbs up to Eastbourne

Carl Stanger

bill bryson sunday timesThe sun is shining bright and clear this autumnal morning, the sky a cloudless blue – perfect conditions for a walk along the Seven Sisters and beyond, into the South Downs National Park. Bill Bryson would certainly approve – indeed, he has done.

20 years on from his best-selling Notes from a Small Island, he’s continued his adventures around the UK and found time to fondly amble along the South Downs Way, the 100 miles stretch from Winchester to Eastbourne along the rolling chalk downs of the south coast.

“The Seven Sisters is one of the great walks of England. From the top of Haven Brow the view is just sensational. Ahead of you stretches a hazy infinity of rolling hills, each ending at the seaward side in a sudden plunge of white chalk. On a sunny day like this one, it is a world of simple, bright elements; green land, white cliffs, deep blue sea, matching sky.” Bill Bryson, The Road to Little Dribbling’.
