Plumpton Bostall
Plumpton Bostall
Bostall is an old Sussex word for a track that heads up the northern scarp slope of the South Downs and was used for sheep droving between the pastures above and the fields and farms below. Many of the routes have become tracks now used as bridleways or footpaths, though a few have been surfaced and become part of the road network. Plumpton Bostall was little more than a bridleway until World War Two when the need to get the tanks and artillery up onto the training grounds on the Downs meant a concrete surface was applied and has remained in place ever since. The track is currently used as vehicular access to Streathill Farm from the B2116. A bridleway heads off to the left towards Plumpton Place.
