With K and Alison, parked on A road above Duncton, walked down to Seaford College, along to Graffham, then up to and along S Downs Way to track jcn 500m from summit and followed obvious path to not-so-obvious top.IanHHill26/03/2019
Approached from Duncton viewpoint following paths skirting quarry through woods on scarp slope. High point marked by flint cairn and adjacent memorial to crew of Lancaster that crashed during WWII killing all on board. Good views to Isle of Wight and east along the downs.Pete West15/01/2019
From the chapel to the south. Another hill with a memorial to the crew of a crashed plane. Utter carnage on British hills during the war it seems. Ventured into the wood but impossible to identify an obvious high point.Herbert Anchovy12/09/2018
Jenx and Bryher. Longish walk through woods to emerge at the top and views to the coast. Good parking point on A285, off road path then pleasant RoW to summit.nordicstar13/05/2018

10 ascents of the Downs over 7 hrs working our way along zig zagging up and down from Cocking car park to Grafham and back (no summmit today). With L and Betty the Jack Russell. Good amount of up training gearing up for Langdale OMM next month. nicely sheltered in the woods during heavy showers except for the last hour of torrential downpour and 40 mph winds . Strangely exhilarating as we ran through it. Meanwhile Hurricane Irma was battering Florida. .Chris Pearson10/09/2017
