The Monarch’s Way is a route that Charles II took when escaping from Oliver Cromwell after the Battle of Worcester in 1651.  Part of this route is along the South Downs.  For more information visit – http://www.monarchsway.50megs.com/

A group of us decided to spend one night camping and two days walking part of the Monarch’s Way, starting from Amberley and ending in Shoreham-by-Sea.  We lo-impact camped on the South Downs using Hammocks, Tarps and Bivvi Bags.
