Andy Goldsworthy Chalk Stones Trail

30 Days Wild – Day #13 – Andy Goldsworthy’s chalk stones trail

Here’s our diary from our ‘30 Days Wild’  – if you don’t know about 30 Days Wild then start here.  

A walk from West Dean to Bepton Down

How cool are these giant chalk balls? This one is about 2 metres across and sits on the hill above Cocking in West Sussex. It marks the beginning of a trail called The Chalk Stones Trail which is a five mile walk through the heart of the South Downs, following a trail of 13 similar round chalk stone sculptures by the environmental artist, Andy Goldsworthy. The trail starts at Cocking Hill and ends at West Dean Gardens. You can even download a trail guide leaflet and map for the trail from the National Trail website.
