Our wood is supplied from the beautiful South Downs National Park which is only down the road to us here at Logpile. The park stretches 140 kilometres across areas in Hampshire, West Sussex and East Sussex, from Winchester to Eastbourne. It covers 1,627 square kilometres of the South of England.
From the breathtaking Winchester cathedral to the gorgeous Arundel castle, all the way down to the white chalky cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head, in Eastbourne. This park offers some stunning views and amazing insights to the history that surrounds the South of England.
- Seven Sisters
These iconic white, chalk cliffs are one of the main attractions of the South Downs National Park. They stretch a huge 22.5 kilometres between Seaford and Eastbourne, and offer a picturesque view of gorgeous white cliffs and a lovely carpet of green grass across the top, in contrast with the beautiful blue sea below. One of the best views of the Seven Sister is at Birling Gap, which looks over the cliffs and admires the rolling hills.
2. Goosehill Camp
Goosehill camp is the hidden remains of an Iron Age settlement inhabited in 500 BC, it sits on the hillside and is hidden within the woods of Kingley Vale. This gives a great insight as to how families lived back in the Iron Age, the central enclosure that is believed to be for the family, features three round platforms that could indicate that there may have been three roundhouses.
This gorgeous observing point is based just South-west of Petersfield in Hampshire and is the highest in the county and the second highest in the South Downs. It is a great place to view the Milky Way in the clear night sky. The hill gives gorgeous views across the Hampshire and West Sussex countryside, allowing you to take in the miles of beautiful green fields and woodlands that span across the area.
