Great Barn Farm, Wiston
Great Barn Farm, Wiston
The farm, which lies at the northern foot of the South Downs, close to Chanctonbury Ring, is named after the substantial barn which is seen through the trees, under repair, in this picture. The farm sits alongside an old east-west track which was, throughout the Middle Ages and until 1778, the main road between Steyning and Washington. It was superseded when a road roughly along the line of the modern Steyning-Washington road further north was improved and partly realigned, and the southern road was closed to traffic. This coincided with the period when Wiston Park was enlarged and the village moved from its old location close to Wiston House to its present location further north. Taken from Chanctonbury Ring Road at TQ145124 looking east.
