May NEWS: South Downs National Park and Authority “officially” Live as of April 1st. Good regional and national media coverage.

We have started a campaign to to install WebCams and Wind Vanes/ Speedometers at a few spots along the South Downs Way. With the photos and wind data being fed to the SDNPA website. This is very useful for walkers / bikers / paragliders to get an up-to date idea of weather conditions. It is something that some of the other national parks have in place. The obvious spots are Butser Hill and Devils Dyke (there did used to be a local BBC? webcam at Devils Dyke but it seems to have gone) Let them know what you think at:

We are now getting over 220 visitors a week
