Devil’s Dyke entrance

Postcard of Devil’s Dyke entrance, 1910s.

Devil’s Dyke is said to be Britain’s longest dry valley and is named after the legend of its creation.

In Victorian times, it was a popular pleasure spot. The site had two bandstands, a fairground, a camera obscura, a cable car spanning the valley and from 1897 a funicular railway.

On 22 May 1893 during Whit Monday the Dyke received 30,000 visitors.
