Southwick is a village almost entirely owned by the Southwick Estate. Southwick Hall (HMS Dryad) was the headquarters of SHAEF and was the centre for D-Day planning in WW2
I parked on Back :Lane. passenger side tight to the hedge about 100 yards from the junction with the High Street. There is a driveway that appears to belong to the house with a flagpole in its front garden but it is also the start of a county council footpath. Take it over a footbridge over a tiny stream and the pathway leads to open fields, in part used to grow Christmas trees. From the path you can launch and get enough height to photograph the village or take a 360 pano..
Pick your colour, Red or Gold to enjoy a drink at one of the Lions in the High Street.
There's another nearby site that will give a view of the village with the Defence Police School in the foreground, see details in the discussion thread on Grey Arrows.
Land owner permission requirements unknown.
