Kingley Vale, West Sussex
A special, spooky and spectacular hillside to the north west of Chichester. The highlight is the yew woodland which covers much of its southern slopes. A small number of the trees are very old indeed – probably over 500 years old. Before man and sheep started to have an impact on the landscape of the South Downs, yew forests were relatively common. Now they are rare. West Sussex PO18.
