These steps might look daunting, but they are far from the steepest part of this route. They cover about half of the downhill path through the wooded slope. It's actually easier to walk alongside them, when going downwards at least. They have the texture of wood but are actually some sort of cast stone.
Higher up, before I got this far, the path was bordered by primroses. (But these are less dramatic for an opening picture.)

One green patch looked different. It was a charming, rather tender little plant which is called Moschatel because it is supposed to smell musky at dusk.

Further on I crossed the grassy chalk slopes, the grass kept short by rabbits. The grass was full of Hairy Violets, a species typical of chalk country.

Here's a shot taken from halfway up.

Finally, walking back along the top I saw masses of Wood Anemones under the trees, always a lovely Spring sight.
