The East Sussex SMR used to have a monument recorded as "Heffalump Trap" on it. I'd always assumed it was there in honour of A. A. Milne's use of the Ashdown Forest for the Pooh stories. Was it really a relic of Iron Age defensive structures?
Sadly an over zealous SMR officer removed this cultural gem.
You can tell it's Friday!
