Trundle Day Walk 10th April 2019

Pete's splendid walk started from Lavant and took the West Sussex Literary Trail up to The Trundle overlooking Goodwood Racecourse. It was a beautiful day and not too hot for climbing up the hill. The Trundle had human activity around 4,300 years ago but they didn't get around to building a fort until about 2,000 years ago. It wasn't until 1802 that someone had the bright idea of building a racecourse nearby. There is little evidence of a fort on the Trundle today, but it does have 2 large radio masts. After admiring the splendid views the  walkers descended to a well earned lunch in The Dean Inn in West Dean. Very adequately refreshed, they made their way via an old railway tunnel to the New Lipchis Way back to the cars in Lavant. Many thanks to Marian and Pauline for photos and the map.
