Ditchling Common

The Common is a tranquil place where you can enjoy woodlands, open grassy areas, lakes, stunning bluebells in springtime, and splendid views towards the South Downs. The networks of paths are great for countryside walks and for spotting rare fauna and flora. Picnic tables are provided.

You can explore the different habitats of Ditchling Common on the Nature Trail, but watch out for the grazing cattle!
