A very nice walk along the downs from Patcham. Definitely recommend it and amazing views when you reach it. Also an important memorial to all the Indians who lots their lives fighting on behalf of Britain.

Just parked my car up on the slip road and walked to this peaceful structure. Takes about 30 minutes to get to but it’s a charming monument recognising the fallen Indian soldiers. There are plenty of benches to rest up and enjoy the stunning landscape.

So much more than a little temple on the Downs. It has history and meaning. Walk, contemplate and, as always do, pray. Magical.

The carpark with the Clayton windmills is closer I think. The carpark at Ditchling Beacon is further. The walk from the windmills passes close to the golf course so a good diversion is to hunt for lost golf balls
