    From the summit of Ditchling Beacon you are afforded a wonderful panoramic view. Standing at 814 feet (248 metres) above sea level, it is the highest point along the Sussex Downs. You can look south to sea, north across the Weald, or east-west across the Downs. The site, which is managed by the National Trust, is also of archaeological interest due to there being an Iron Age hillfort there.

    There is an OS Trig point here and a flat concrete slap nearby, not sure if this is where they light the beacon.
