Viewing events from January, 2016
Dens' walk - Weavers Down, Chapel Common
Walk cancelled due to very bad weather
There are the remains of the Roman Road that went to Chichester on Chapel Common. The path that goes to the Black Fox will cross the road, which may (?) be seen as a cutting up to 16m wide and 1/2 m deep, with traces of the original raised, cambered and ditched road surface. There are faint traces on the OS map, showing where the road may appear. Information from Historic England.
There are also rumours of a wild Polecat on Chapel Common!!
Starting in Lavant - a walk to Chichester and a tour of the Walls, built around 200 AD. Lunch in Chichester.
The Roman baths are beneath West Street, the amphitheatre is under the Cattle market and the basilica thought to be under the Cathedral. The local Roman ruler, Tiberius Claudius Cogidibubnus, probably lived at Fishbourne.
