PEOPLE can learn about the history of the South Downs National Park at a talk.

The Secret of the High Woods project, which is run by the park, has discovered the landscape history using technology and different data.

Starting in 2014, the project has uncovered information on the past communities of those who lived and worked on the South Downs.

The group has used Lidar data (terrain mapping through light detection and ranging) to see beneath the trees.

A talk by Mark Seaman will explain more about the project and what the Lidar data has revealed about Stansted.

The event is at the Historical Society meeting on Thursday, January 14, at the Small Parish Hall, Links Lane, Rowlands Castle.

It starts at 7.30pm and is £2.50 for non-members.
