Description

Details

Take your swimsuit and towel and join us!!

Situated on the South Downs, north of Brighton, the Devil’s Dyke National Trust is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It makes for a wonderful afternoon out for all the family with breath-taking views.

Devil's Dyke got its name from a legend. The legend says the devil was furious at the conversion of the people of the Weald to Christianity and decided to dig a dyke through the South Downs, so the sea could flow in and drown their villages. To make sure his efforts were not discovered until it was too late, he decided to dig it over a single night. However, his work woke an old woman, who lit a candle. This then woke her cockerel, who began to grow. Seeing the light and hearing the cockerel, the devil was fooled into thinking it was dawn, rushed off with his work uncompleted and the Weald was saved.

And the beach!! We will finalize our walk in front of the beach, so help yourself!!
