An Inspirational English Garden


For nature lovers, the South Downs Way passes through an extraordinary range of diverse habitats from ancient woodlands, river valleys, chalk grassland to mixed farm land and coastal habitats.

The floodplain of the River Arun  forms part of the Arun Valley Special Protection Area for its wintering wildfowl, particularly large numbers of wigeon and teal. It also has important breeding populations of lapwings, redshanks, and in particular snipe, for which this is the only reliable Sussex population. There is considerable biodiversity interest, especially as it is the main UK site for the Biodiversity Action Plan species cut-grass (Leeesprsia oryzoides). See RSPB centres and guided walks and health walks - details below.
