The move to Bignor Hill put the stone right next to the South Downs Way, and about 500 bikes passed on route for Eastbourne between 10 and midday. Not one long distance cyclist wandered over, but they can be forgiven given their trial.
I had visitors today from Fittleworth, Manchester, London, Australia, West Burton, Arundel and Lewes; also a small recce party for a future Dyke Hikes London walking group event, a family holidaying from Oxfordshire and another couple camping at Slindon, some local geocachers, a group of doctors, some returners from a previous stone location and two ladies raising money for Macmillan and Spina Bifida charities whilst on their walk. Probably 50 people during the hot day.
The short film above marks the start of an auspicious day for the sculptor. Visions are beginning.
As one South Downs Way pilgrim pointed out, you make good progress when on track and dedicated to the task in hand. Next carving at Bignor Hill – Sunday 1st August!
