Butser Hill :: Shared Description

At 271m (889') Butser Hill is the highest point on the South Downs. The trig pillar is situated just below the peak at 270m.
There are fine views from around the flanks of the hill near the top in most directions, although some are obscured by nearby woodland.
On the top of the hill is a communications mast and associated buildings - the view from the top of the mast would be excellent in all directions, but is of course not open to the public as it is an active mast.
Although it is the highest point in the South Downs N.P. it is not quite the highest point in Hampshire, that being Pilot Hill on the very northern edge of the county which is about 15m (50') higher.
Near to Butser Hill on the opposite side of the main A3 trunk road can be found "Butser Ancient Farm" which is a collection of reconstructed ancient dwellings covering the Neolithic, Mesolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman and Saxon eras.
Much of Butser Hill itself is a Scheduled Ancient Monument as it contains Iron Age field systems and cross dykes as well as Bronze Age barrows - see its EH listing here LinkExternal link
