Day 2, Sun 30 May 2021

Through the Night

As darkness falls, we set off in a south-easterly direction across the ancient Long Burgh towards the village of Alfriston. Easing in with a long downhill section, the route is lit by torchlight and stars. For many, trekking through the night will be one of the most challenging aspects of the journey as our senses become more attuned to the enveloping darkness.

The terrain becomes more challenging and fatigue sets in as we follow the course of the Cuckmere River towards the coast. Draw on hidden reserves of energy to battle through the tiredness.

Crossing the rolling chalk hills of  the Seven Sisters we then enter the most spectacular, and most challenging part of the walk, past the Belle Tout Lighthouse and on to our journey’s end at the top of Beachy Head.

A new day dawns on the spectacular vista of chalky white hills and sea views. All being well, we will arrive at the finishing line in time for sunrise and a well-earned breakfast!
