Member's Comments on Mount Caburn...

  • Chris Pearson says...
  • Weak winter sun slanting under the clouds. Up firm chalk grass path from Glynde. (Old worlde houses and blacksmith). The Iron age fort on top (two ditches and banks) may be the most excavated site in Britain, with 170 trenches. There are over 140 burial pits on Caburn: some are circular, some triangular and some rectangular. Each pit was found to be full of artefacts. Deposits included weapons, tools, pottery, coins, querns, and disarticulated human and animal bones. Caburn is also a noted paragliding venue described as "a conical dome, extending to a south-west face and bowl beyond. It is often affected by the sea breeze which can make the air rough. The lift band is typically small, and the site can become crowded. Marshalling restrictions are sometimes applied." Calm and empty today

  • Climb up from Glynde with Helen & Molly on a very hot day. Great views from the top but hazy in the humid heat.
