First trig of a walk on the South Downs way. I had intended doing the full 100 miles but cut it to 50, and in the end stormy weather dropped it to 40. No problems, it was enjoyable and bagged some trigs. Trig easy to find, with haze over the Channel.

Walked up from Eastbourne Pier, along the promenade, then up Carlisle Road to join the South Downs Way (took about 40 minutes) and reached this pillar which retains its cap with shallow lettering and one sight-hole open. Refreshing lemonade at the welcoming Buccaneer on the way back down.
