Looking along the escarpment from Chanctonbury Ring
Chanctonbury Ring was originally a small hill fort in a commanding position dating from the 6th to 5th centuries BC - the early Iron Age. The beech trees, were planted in 1760 by Charles Goring within the earth bank of the fort. As the trees grew rapidly, they became a prominent landmark. However, the Great Storm of 1987 destroyed most of the trees and the replanted trees are only now beginning to mature and restore Chanctonbury Ring to what it was before. This view is from the edge of the Ring looking along the South Downs scarp towards the trig point. The view from the trig point looking in the opposite direction can be seen at LinkExternal link
