Chanctonbury Ring is a lovely small Iron-Age Fort of three & a half acres. It has one single entrance (to the south-west). It's beautifully green and contains a variety of trees which today provided welcome shade. There seemed to be an encampment of several walking groups up here today resting and/or picnicking. The trig sits alone about a quarter of a mile to the west. Pillar has an open cap with two s/h's open.

The South Downs, a very under-rated part of the country. Rolling green hills, more challenging than is generally thought - I'm a little biased as I grew up here and spent many years walking the hills with the scouts, although not visited Chanctonbury before. Trig is a little way from the 'ring', being a hill fort with a distinctive ring of trees around it, and is also a little off the path, the South Downs Way.

We cycled around the ring and thought it was puzzling there was no trig here. we checked the map - a one:gazillion map provided by the British Heart foundation for the ride in June. No trig mentioned, although that may not be important. We sat down, drank red bull and ate an energy bar and saw it just over the way. Doh. Ambled over on the bikes before heading back down the Hill to Cocking where we'd left the car. Would have been fantastic views on a clear day. there was a plane doing aerobatics to watch though.
