Parked by the church at Folkington and then with Helen & Molly we walked West to climb up steeply to the summit and Trigpoint before continuing on over the Long Man and then circled round under the hill figure following the Wealdway and back to the church. We saw a Falconer sitting high on the slope flying a Harris Hawk.

Continued above the Long Man before losing height and swinging east to walk under the Long Man for good views of it. Pillar is in good condition and good 360 views to be had.
