Something else that we can see if we only take the time to look is the history that surrounds us.
The past shapes the landscape, from the round barrows dotted across the hills to the marks of medieval strip farming.
Or more recently - from a time when the coast was fortified and guarded. A time when an invasion was feared. Hence the pill boxes we find along our coastlines.
Or even here, in this field. This was a radar station, manned day and night, watching for enemy aircraft crossing the channel. It was part of the Chain Home early warning radar network that proved so vital during World War 2.
Now forgotten and half buried beneath the meadow grasses.
