It’s going to be a bit quiet in the Arundel office this week as three of us head off to the hills to walk the South Downs Way – all in a good cause (South Downs Society).

It’s 20 years since Jerry and I  last did the route – we cycled it last time and are looking forward to walking this time. It was what inspired us to move to Sussex and ultimately set up beechtobeach. Standing at the top of Chanctonbury Ring among beech trees and being able to see the sea (and imagine the beach) below was the inspiration for our company name.

Now we’re going to see what’s changed and gather ideas and inspiration for our work ahead. Our designer Sophie is doing the whole journey too as a live arts project. Follow the blog on this site and think of Josh who is busy editing for a client.
