Chiltington Lane

the landscape assessment walks in East Chiltington

Click on the link above to get back to the main article which describes the LLCA walks which took place in September 2016.

11.35 - We're now standing in the most built up section of Chiltington Lane - which comprises a cluster of 3 houses:- Kemps House, Burrells and Upper Burrells. Two of these are listed. The view shown immediately below is from standing in the lane looking along the side of Kemps House at the South Downs. And this is where Network Rail have their own reserved access so they can get their tonka toys and railway stuff to the other side of the tracks from a highway. There's no other access for heavy vehicles.

My neighbours might well ask at this stage - how is it possible to take such unflattering pictures of this pretty spot? Where are the flowers? Other readers might ask - what are those signs?

As relates to pretty photos. These are the record of the photos I took on that day. It was September (not the best time to see flowers here) and the gloominess is because it was about to rain. (Do you remember the invitation email at the start of this?)

As to the signs? These new protest signs - say no to caviar farm - had been freshly planted all along this lane and others in East Chiltington (in correct legal locations) despite their predecessors having been all removed the week before by East Sussex Highways. The story had a happy ending for the rural character of the area.

In the picture below - you can see where I was standing when taking the above pictures - looking down the slope from a little way further up. This was taken 2 weeks earlier on August 29, 2016. What a difference a bit of sunshine makes.
