Chanctonbury Ring, South Downs

It was a bit of a climb (understatement) which was more acute than high but well worth the effort. Luckily, before we went, I hadn’t read anything of the tales of rituals and witchcraft that have been reported from and about Chanctonbury Ring that sits up high on the South Downs in Sussex. And, maybe my excitement to possibly wild camp there one evening has been somewhat dampened since reading said tales – we’ll see.

Exposed gnarled roots evidence the ancient woodland on the ascent.
Out of the woodland climb and onto the top of the downs.
These lambs seem unaffected by their proximity to the ring.
Approaching the ring into the setting sun.
Inland, across Sussex.
A romantic barbeque for two.
Better quality filters have since been purchased which may (or may not) eliminate some of this flare.
Heading back down through the forest before total darkness falls – and the witching hour begins 🙂
