Southern Tip of the Saxon Burh, Burpham
Southern Tip of the Saxon Burh, Burpham
The trees line the sides of the former Saxon hill fort built around the time of Alfred the Great to defend against Viking incursions. Many burhs became local boroughs, centres of administration, however the one at Burpham was superseded by Arundel to the west. The water course is a small tributary of the Arun that feeds the villages of Burpham and Wepham.
