Good to see some trundle loving on HN, if you visit do not attempt the track by car west of it leading south!

You can park close by, but it still feels like a hike to the top.

There's nothing more universally deflating as a British child than being told you're going to see some ancient hill fort, letting your castle-filled imagination run wild, before arriving there after a long car journey, and just seeing a hill.

A few miles down the road from me.

Another nearby place to visit if you're in the Chichester area is Kingley Vale [1]. It too has a hill fort at the top, but even more impressive is the amazing 1000-year-old yew forest at the bottom. Planted (according to tradition) by the Saxons to celebrate a victory over the Vikings.

ed: also check out the lovely country pub in the village of Stoughton at the bottom.
