Woods Mill is the headquarters of the Sussex Wildlife Trust but you would never know. It has not been very well managed. The ponds are not looked after properly and as for the bird hide, well you could sit there all day and not see...More

We had an absolutely fantastic afternoon stroll at Woods Mill on the last weekend in April. After just a quick 15 minute drive from central Brighton you're in tranquil countryside, surrounded by green fields and pretty woodlands. The woods are unmissable during spring, carpeted in...More

Love soaking up the Sussex countryside here. Always take binoculars and a camera. Sparrowhawks are a common sight in the fields.

A nice place to visit, relaxing walks and good for photography. Educational for kids and adults too, no shop or food but Loo's and one disabled loo. Amble parking and free entry.

This is quite a small reserve but has hides, ponds (with pond dipping for children), lovely easy walks (ambling really) and an attractive picnic area. There is a surprising variety of habitats.

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