Nature Walk: Butterflies and maybe the orchid, Autumn Lady's tresses, Wednesday 11 August 2021, 4.5 miles

This leisurely 4.5 miles circular walk over Newtimber Hill has 224m of ascent and descent.
Leaving from the "old A23 cul-de-sac" at Pycombe, we walk up the road and take the footbridge over the A23 to Wayfield Farm Coffee shop for a coffee break.  Suitably refreshed, we amble up to the west facing ridge with stunning views over Poynings and the Downs for a short break to admire the view.
Then open access land to pick up the South Downs way back.  Please see https://my.viewranger.com/track/details/MTY2MzA3NTc%3D for the route.  On Wednesday we may find elusive Autumn Lady's tresses native orchid.
