In the spirit of the great outdoors, Bovril has put its money and its passion for the countryside up front and offered the National Trust £100,000 to improve and revive some of the Nationís favourite places of beauty and tranquillity. Over the last few months, members of the public have been able to vote to for their favourite place from a list of 79 National Trust properties in need of a Bovril boost, the top five all getting a cut of the action.
The results are not only a great success for the National Trust, but also for the South Downs Way as Saddlescombe Farm near Devilís Dyke on the Trail is one of the five lucky winners.
The historic Devilís Dyke will use Bovril funding to create an exhibition area to tell the 1,000 year old story of the Hamlet of Saddlescombe. Visitors will be able to enjoy the stunning scenery, history and wildlife in the area with new signs and paths, opening up the area around the deepest dry valley in England. All of this work will be undertaken near one of the newest and most loved tearooms on the South Downs, The Hikerís Rest, making Devilís Dyke truly unmissable stop on the South Downs Way.
