Cissbury Ring



At Cissbury Ring there is a treasure concealed in an underground tunnel guarded by serpents. Perhaps this is linked to the extensive Neolithic flint mines on the western side of the hill? 250 blocked shafts have been found - up to 12m deep with side galleries.

The Ring itself is actually a lump of earth thrown off the Devil's spade as he was digging his Devil's Dyke.
