The Smugglers Table
In Charlton Forest, which stands on the northern edge of the South Downs near the village of Cocking in West Sussex, there used to stand a group of stones called "The Smugglers Table". This feature has now disappeared and replaced with a fir tree, but a local man said that the table was used by the smugglers to hide their casks of spirits [Beckett 1943 p.62]. The description of these stones as a table and the ability to hide goods inside it suggest that this may have been a dolmen like tomb. source - aspen/sussex/stones

Flight Magazine, 2 March 1956
A new hill site near Cocking, on the South Downs, was used for the first time by members of the Lasham Gliding Centre on Sunday, February 19th, when a Tiger Moth tug and five sailplanes were flown there by a party under C.F.I. Derek Piggott. The site, which has been loaned by Lord Cowdray, consists of a field large enough for aero-towing and situated at the top of the hill.
