Come and explore the hidden history of The Trundle…

June 8, 2017

Beneath the ancient woodland of the South Downs National Park lies a secret landscape littered with traces of the people who have lived, visited and worked here.

The woods have protected this hidden landscape with features unseen and unknown for years, even by the frequent visitor. However, recent research, including ground breaking LIDAR data capture of the project area, carried out by the Heritage Lottery Funded project Secrets of the High Woods has revealed these treasures and some of the stories behind them. You can now explore some of these findings using our new Hidden Landscape Trails.

The second of these trail guides is now available and is centred on The Trundle near Chichester. With three different routes up to the Trundle you can enjoy stunning views from all sides. Once there you’ll find evidence of human settlements dating back to the Neolithic Age. It is also easy to reach local attractions such as Goodwood House, West Dean Gardens and the Weald and Downland Living Museum.

The third publication in this series is currently in production and will give you an insight to the stunning National Nature Reserve, Kingley Vale.
