The South Downs National Park extends from the outskirts of Eastbourne in East Sussex, to the edge of Winchester in Hampshire. It consists of a considerable chunk of southern England and it contains an extraordinary variety of archaeological and historic monuments. You can explore the camps, flint mines and tombs of the earliest farmers, walk around great earthen banks bounding Iron Age hillforts, stroll along Roman roads, visit Saxon churches and medieval castles and houses and examine the remains of industry and more recent military conflicts. Take a walk anywhere in the Park and you find yourself taking a walk into the past. With easy-to-follow maps, evocative photographs and details of sites to visit, the reader can quickly gain both an overview of the Park's rich history and appreciate the specifics of individual monuments.
