Notes

Bronze Age cross dyke 170 metres in length situated on a parish boundary on a high chalk ridge between Telegraph Hill and Cheesefoot Head. It ends at the north east on the steep edge of the Devil's Punchbowl. The monument survives best to the south of South Downs Way where it forms a north to south earthen bank flanked to the east by a ditch. The dyke may have doubled as a field boundary at its southern end. Scheduled.
