taken 4 years ago, near to Westdean, East Sussex, Great Britain

Chyngton Farm
Chyngton Farm
Chyngton was originally a small medieval settlement that shrank to little more than the farm by the early modern period. Being next to downland the decline of the village may well have been a mixture of economic, whereby arable farming was replaced by more the more lucrative and less labour intensive sheep farming, the various plagues that struck the country from the 14th century or the persistent destruction caused by the raiding French during the Hundred Years War.

In view are a couple of former farm buildings that have been converted into dwellings, the barn on the right is now called Two Hoots, the byre beyond Barn Cottage. On Chyngton Lane are a couple of flint fronted former labourers cottages.
