The Sussex Dowsers  have organised a Field Trip in Highdown  on  Sun  14th Sept.
History – of Highdown Hill, south downs, Sussex click here

The last time Sussex Dowsers visited Highdown it was to visit the bath house  and roman villa this time the focus is going to be on the hill fort site.
At the tea room at 1 o’clock for lunch or at the top of Highdown  Hill car park  at 2 o’clock.

Highdown can be found north of the A259 between Angmering and Ferring. BN126PF

Please phone David on 07754780553 if you wish to join in with this marvellous day trip

There is also a free chalk pit garden that is well worth a visit. It is just next to the Highdown Hill car park and just above the tea room.

“Highdown Camp is one of the most enigmatic enclosures in the South Downs. Much fieldwork has taken place here but the original function of the enclosure is unknown. It may well have been built about 1500 BC and it was certainly refurbished in the Iron Age and Roman periods at which time it may have functioned as a ritual sanctuary.

There is an Anglo-Saxon cemetery here too, and during WWII, troops were stationed
on site”
