Fulking Escarpment Sunset 1

Devils Dyke and the Fulking Escarpment

Event info

Tickets will go on sale on 20 July.

Visit the beautiful South Downs with tutor Philip Bedford in an area protected by the National Trust. Capture light as it sculpts the shape of light over these magnificent hills and find plenty of new compositions as you pass over each individual hill along the South Downs way. We will walk around the Dyke first to get photographs before exploring the surrounding area and various viewpoints.

If possible, around 18:00 we will stop for dinner in the Devil's Dyke pub restaurant (not included in workshop ticket price) and then resume our photography for the sunset.

Terrain is quite hilly, so lots of walking on footpaths and hilly, uneven terrain. Some rocky paths but most areas are easy to walk on. Expect hiking of around 5-6 miles throughout the day.

Please bring / wear:

  • Loose change for car park
  • Camera, charged batteries, memory card
  • Tripod
  • Graduated neutral density filters (if you have them)
  • Warm and waterproof clothing suitable for the weather, location and time of year
  • Walking boots / shoes

This will be a group C event for up to five people.  The group size may be increased to six if social distancing regulations allow.



Social distancing:

The workshop leader will be following safe practices in line with social distancing guidance and will require participants to do the same.  Please do not attend if you do not wish to comply.

Cancellation policy

Cancellation by You

If you wish to cancel your booking PLEASE let the event leader / organiser know with as much notice as possible. If nothing else, this can avoid them delaying the start of the event while they wait for you.

If you have paid for an event, please note that this fee/ticket price is non-refundable unless we are able to sell your place to somebody else. You are welcome to sell your place yourself but, again, PLEASE notify the event leader / organiser in advance of any change.

Cancellation by us

Event leaders are asked to make plans for alternative activities or locations in the case of poor weather and, in most cases, events will proceed despite poor weather unless, in the view of the event leader, the weather will lead to unacceptable safety risks or very little chance of successful photography. It is inevitable, however, that occasionally an event will be postponed or cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control. If an event is postponed we will transfer your booking to the rearranged event, with the option of a refund if the rescheduled date is not suitable for you.

Occasionally an event may also be cancelled owing to lack of bookings. So if you wish to attend an event, don’t leave it till the last minute to book as it may be too late.

If an event is cancelled we will give you as much notice as we are able and any payment by you to the RPS in respect of the event offered as a full refund. In the case of events cancelled because of lack of interest we will aim to give at least three weeks’ notice wherever possible.

Please note we are NOT able to refund any associated or consequential costs including but not limited to travel, accommodation, insurance premium or other costs incurred by you in order to attend the event.
