Thoroughly enjoyed the walk to the Chattri and once there it was extremely tranquil with fantastic views. We went late afternoon so we could admire the autumnal sunset on the walk home

This was built to remember Indian servicemen who served in WW1 and was therefore built in an appropriate style. The drawback for some is that it can only be reached on foot. The shortest walk is from just off the roundabout where the A27- A23...More
