Training walk 1 Devils Dyke and Furkling Escarpment

Gosh have to keep checking the spelling of the second way point. We did a loop which convered part of our 100km walk in July. This covered CP6 to close to WP 8. Lessons learned
1. There are no really big hills in this section (nor anywhere on SDW) but there is hardly any flat.
2. A couple of steepish bits but these pass quickly however constant small up and downs take their toll. Anyone who has walked Seven Sisters will know what I mean.
3. It took us some time...but there was some navigation needed. We went the wrong way even on the SDW (inaccurate signpost and then no signpost) and used the Satnav.
4. It was stunningly beautiful
