Heyshott Common

UK»England»Sussex»Heyshott Common

The Bronze Age Barrows on Heyshott Common are scheduled Ancient Monuments

(SAMS) and are some three and a half millennia old. The effort taken to construct them using simple wood, flint and antler tools would have been considerable, and it is likely that they were both territorial markers and places of ritual enactment.

Ambersham Common

Amongst the finest remaining heathlands in West Sussex and were made a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in 1954. In summer the large areas of heath are alive with purple heather, buzzing insects and calling birds. Many uncommon plants can be found growing in patches of marshy grassland and bog. Also look out for glow worms on a summer's evening.
