Extra Info:

Since the 1930s, it has been possible to take a motorised bus from Brighton to Devil's Dyke. This facility helped lead to the closure on 31st December 1938 of the Dyke Railway, which had transported passengers from Brighton Station to Devil's Dyke since 1st September 1887 using mainly steam locomotives.
Local folklore explains the valley as the work of the devil. The legend holds that the devil was digging a trench to allow the sea to flood the many churches in the Weald of Sussex. The digging disturbed an old woman who lit a candle, or angere causing a rooster to crow, making the devil believe the morning was fast approaching. The devil then fled, leaving his trench uncompleted.
