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.
