To the Lighthouse

Join us on our final guided walk of the season where we will be shining a light on the last 3,000 years of human settlement on Belle Tout.

  • Booking essential

Our final guided walk of 2024 around what may have been the largest ancient hilltop enclosure in the country. Archaeological digs have unearthed burial mounds, Beaker pottery and other artefacts as well as a controversial shaft dug by our ancestors 40 metres into the chalk. On reaching the lighthouse, that has featured in the TV series “The Life and Loves of a She-Devil”, you will hear stories of “Mad Jack” Fuller and Parson Darby.
