You will arrive at the South Downs Way, and you should pause a moment to take in the views of the coast here. Continuing on, you will come across the Chanctonbury Ring hilltop. This is a great place to have a picnic; however, as legend has it, the Devil offers people a bowl of soup in return for their soul, so if you are superstitious, possibly avoid soup!
