V for Victoria

V for Victoria - a commemorative planting on the South Downs to mark Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1887 After a good walk yesterday in the Low Weald it was off to stretch out legs on the South Downs at Ditchling. The weather was superb, and the visibility improved all day to the extent that in the afternoon we could see across over the High Weald and Ashdown Forest to see the tops of the North Downs.

The walk was nice, but not that remarkable – though that could have been because I have been here a number of times walking and cycling in recent times.

The path we took did cross the top of the V-shaped clump of trees (pictured above – from Google Maps). It was planted to mark Queen Victoria’s jubilee in 1887.
