Halnaker Mill And Boxgrove Priory

At the top of Halnaker Hill is a scheduled ancient monument as it is the location of a Neolithic earthwork structure known as a ‘causewayed enclosure‘. Causewayed enclosures are often located on hilltop sites, encircled by one to four concentric ditches with an internal bank. This scheduling includes the WW2 observation post and the Windmill, which is also a Grade 2 listed building.

Halnaker Mill was first mentioned in 1540 as belonging to the manor of “Halfnaked”. It was built for the Duke of Richmond as the feudal mill of the Goodwood Estate.
