The fields of Great Barn Farm, Wiston
The fields of Great Barn Farm, Wiston, taken 12 years ago
The ornamental trees in the fields of Great Barn Farm alongside Chanctonbury Ring Road show that they were once part of Wiston Park. The ancient manor of Wiston passed, by marriage, into the Goring family in 1740 and by the mid 19th century they owned most of the parish, as well as large estates in other parishes. In 1760 Charles Goring planted the famous beech trees on Chanctonbury Ring - they were blown down in the severe storm of October 1987. After the second world war most of the park was converted to agriculture. The house itself is now a conference centre run by the Foreign Office.
