TQ3514 : Sand Pit Field

taken 8 years ago, near to Streat, East Sussex, Great Britain

Sand Pit Field
Sand Pit Field
The name of the field according to the 1838 tithe map. Between the ridge in the distance and the foot of the South Downs is a small geological strip of land known as the greensand which contains sandy soils and was often quarried for sand, and still is near Storrington. A disused sandpit lies on the western side of Streat Lane nearby and this one may well have contained another old pit which was filled in and reverted to agricultural use.
