The South Downs scarp by Chanctonbury Ring
The South Downs scarp by Chanctonbury Ring
The springy downland turf makes a delightful approach to Chantonbury Ring, coupled with the views down the scarp of the South Downs and across the Weald. 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.
