Ditchling Common Country Park
Reports on our consultation in to why and how people use rights of way and our countryside sites can be found by clicking here.
Ponies from Sussex Pony Conservation Trust will be grazing on the Stud Field to help improve this rare grassland and keep down scrub – see link below for a map of the area and a copy of the notice.
Ditchling Common Country Park covers 76 hectares (188 acres). The site is used for activities including walking, fishing, picnicking, education and dog walking
How to get there
There is a large car park situated on Folders Lane East at the southern end of the Park. The map reference for the car park is TQ335181. The nearest train stations are Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield.
There are two ponds at Ditchling Common County Park, and you can fish in both of them. You’ll need a rod license from the Environment Agency and a fishing permit from us:
Dogs are welcome but they must be kept under control at all times so that they do not disturb others e.g. children, grazing animals, fishermen and nesting birds.
Please use the dog bins located close to the car park.
