Ditchling Beacon



As the link explains, in early sources the fort is known as 'Ditchling Castle' but since it was used as a beacon site for fires its accepted name has gradually changed.

It's said that the Wisht Hounds can be seen racing overhead here (no doubt on dark, stormy nights) in their pursuit of damned souls.
