ANCIENT AND CURIOUS LANDMARKS, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL, OF KENT AND SUSSEX

Two and a half miles north-west of the station at Mailing, Kent, is the village of Aldington where a stone circle (bottom left) may be seen, a rarity in this part of the country. Chiddingstone (bottom right) is two miles to the north-west of Penshurst and celebrated for its " chiding stone." This stands in the grounds of Chiddingstone Castle, and consists of a great block of sandstone which tradition associates with a tribal judgement seat of prehistoric days. Trotterscliff or Trottiscliffe (top left) is a landmark eight miles north-west of Maidstone. Near the village was formerly a palace of the bishops of Rochester. One of the most familiar of the Sussex heights is that of Wolstonbury Beacon (top right), 677 feet high, which is topped by a Neolithic camp.
