This reserve is small and therefore best suited for the young. It offers opportunities to photographers to shoot birds, small mammals and butterflies. Deers if you are very lucky, but I have been twice and managed onliy to catch some butterfly pictures. Probably my fault....More

As this is the head quarters of West Sussex Wildlife Trust maybe I was expecting too much. The path ways are very good and if anyone has trouble walking the land is fairly flat with plenty of places to sit. Children will enjoy this, take...More

This is perfect for a walk with young children. We saw all sorts of birds and flowers and it is fairly flat so good for little legs. The bluebells are beautiful too.

Sorry, no dogs are allowed as it's a wildlife trust. Even though there are people that do much worse damage than dogs can.
