Ah yes- stood on top of it many a time when I was younger and more agile! 677 feet above sea level, or so the redoubtable Miss Durrant, headmistress of the village school in the 50s, used to insist to us uncomprehending infants. What fabulous vista that is, looking west towards the Devils Dyke, Truleigh Hill, and Chanctonbury in the distance! Not hard to understand why the Downs and the Weald were so important in the early understanding of geology- it’s landscape you can literally read like a book.
