  • Robrover says...
  • Good to see so many families enjoying this wonderful spot of open access countryside. Views both inland and along coast eastwards to cliffs beyond Brighton.
  • Chris Pearson says...
  • A night ascent in wellies (for chalky mud)from the road top to the north. Moon shadow on the white chalk path from a full(ish) moon breaking through the clouds. Inky black void of the unlit Downs contrasting to the lit coastal strip. Lots of interesting info on web about the flint mines,iron age fort (~500BC)with a 1 mile around earthbank which would have taken 20 men 2 years to build. Also a hot spot area for crop circles and ufo fans. Royal Argyl & Sutherland Highlanders camped out here before Normandy landings, and a large gun placed here to fire on ships on the Channel. Ran around the hill at about the half way point during the Steyning Stinger Marathon ~2007 -a day of driving sideways rain.
