An historical site in Alfriston is no longer considered at risk.

The Long Burgh long barrow on the crest of the Downs, has been taken off the register following clearance of vegetation by the South Downs National Parks Authority volunteers and a management plan for the site being agreed with the owner, funded by Historic England. There are also plans for an interpretation panel to be installed at the newly cleared site. It had been hidden from visitors by thick bramble, trees and overgrown scrub.

The Long Burgh was built during the early and middle Neolithic periods (3400-2400 BC) and represents the burial place of Britain's early farming communities.
