The Quest for England: From Cissbury to Chanctonbury

It is another wet grim day in Sussex, and I am taking a walk between two landmarks on the South Downs. Starting below Cissbury Ring, near Findon, in West Sussex, I stroll along the muddy paths towards Chanctonbury Ring – both Iron Age hill forts.

Earlier, in Neolithic times, Cissbury was famed for its wonderful flint mines, and later, Chanctonbury hill had a Roman temple upon its summit. But between those vague dates, both had earth banks and ditches encircling them.

An old farm track runs to and from, probably as ancient, and I take a journey along to explore the landscape.
