Listen to ‘richly sonorous’ (Sunday Times) new orchestral music directly inspired by landscape as you explore the South Downs National Park.
Start at the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, turn right and walk up Lodge Hill for stunning views (1 mile, gentle) OR turn left through Ditchling then follow the Sussex Border Path and South Downs Way up to Ditchling Beacon and back through the fields (5 miles, strenuous).
With embedded images reflecting the Museum’s collection and music by Ed Hughes, Professor of Composition at University of Sussex, specially recorded to celebrate the South Downs National Park’s 10th Anniversary in April 2021.
