Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Your Spiritual Side

The South Downs National Park has been a place of worship and inspiration for centuries and still makes a real connection with those who spend time here today.

Pick a summer’s day for a modern pilgrimage up onto the ridge of the chalk escarpment at ancient Chanctonbury Ring. Whilst likely an Iron Age hillfort, legend tells of a Roman temple on the site and the place is alive with Sussex superstitions about witches and the Devil. If you make the climb up from Washington you’ll get a flavour of why this place garners such legend, the views out from the shade of the crown of trees down onto the Weald are nothing short of magical.
