Cissbury Ring is the oldest Hill Fort in West Sussex and only half a mile from our House in Findon. It’s in the South Downs National Park and offers fantastic walks all over The Downs. You could even walk to Chanctonbury Ring which is another Hill Fort. There is a car park at the bottom of the hill just off the corner of Storrington Rise and it’s free.
I won’t talk about the history of the place because there are better qualified people than me on the Internet.
The walks and the views are stunning and you can walk all the way around the top easily within a couple of hours. It’s a good place to have a picnic with the children.
If you walk down the other side from where the car park is situated you can go down through Nepcote Village to Findon Village where there is a little cafe called Julia’s Kitchen to get tea and home made cakes etc. There are a couple of pubs in the village where you can eat and have a pint of Sussex beer if you should desire. I can vouch for the excellent food and Harvey’s beer in the “Village House”pub which is at the bottom of School Lane. You’ll find that it’s a lovely village to walk through and back to the car park off the A24 and Storrington Rise.

Stopped here on a cycle loop round the South Downs.

Cissbury Ring is a lovely Iron Age hill fort to look around; definitely worth exploring. The clouds lifted whilst I was there, thus opening up the views of the surrounding area.

I'd definitely recommend coming here if you get the chance to.

As it was a clear day we thought we take a last minute trip up to the Cissbury Ring before a bracing late afternoon walk at Goring Gap. The sky was clear and no one about, just the place to take in some fresh air and enjoy the panoramic views; a gentle climb brings you to the ‘top of the world’. Human history dates back 5000 years, so how many people have pass through here over time. Only a few local dog walkers passed us, we barely saw 4 people. The ponies are content to feature along side the bracken and wind torn trees, a good place to blow away the cobwebs. When our two year old grandson is able to climb the hillside steps we will bring him here to explore nature, the butterfly’s and fly a kite.

We visited cissbury ring on a sunny autumn day with our 1 year old in a buggy and our 3 year old. It was a challenge getting to the top with the buggy, a real workout for my partner! But if you persist it’s definitely worth it. Better still, take a baby carrier! The 3 year old loved the roaming new forest ponies at the top. The views are amazing. A lovely walk.
