I delight in walking Fern, my English Springer Spaniel, through the woods and fields around Stanmer and over the South Downs.

Pass through the trees, take the footbridge over the bypass - all new since I first walked here - and on the right there's a field split in two by a footpath and a rather strange step. Time was when this was a golf course. This was a favourite walk for a Sunday afternoon in summer with my girl friend when I was, oh, 15 or 16. And somewhere in the bank is a time capsule buried by my brother and me. I wonder if it will ever be found? I can't remember what we put in it.
