Devil's Dyke on a cold showery March day - this is the famous steep sided valley just north of Brighton. Devil's Dyke is a popular venue for outdoor sports.

Fantastic views greet the traveller who make their way up the road to the Iron Age promontory fort, which consists of a single rampart with an external ditch.

In Victorian times, there was a cable car across the valley, which legend says was dug by the devil in an attempt to allow the sea to engulf the many churches that exist in the area.
