Well worth the 10k run we did to encorporate both the Jack and Jill windmills. Take the South Downs way from Hassocks up to the windmills and along the South Downs way to ditching beacon. Great run

We walked past these iconic emblems of the past after a long day trekking the South Downs Way from Storrington. Jill looks quite immaculate whilst poor Jack appears to be in the earlier stages of restoration. Regardless they provided a real beacon of joy for...More
