The Drake-Brockman family in earlier times (1700s?) with the downs in the background. The OS map shows a Temple Pond which I assume is the one in the painting, and a curious clump of trees on the right of the skyline in the first picture is marked as 'Brockman's Bushes'.
The hill towers an astonishing 148 metres above sea level, so the climb was an exhausting 100 metres from the road [who am I, Chris Bonnington?]
Good views along the Downs to France to the east, and across Romney Marsh to Duingeness and Fairlight to the west. On the top, just a few skippers, moths and Small Heaths, a scattering to CS Orchids and a clump of Houndstongue.
