Ditchling Common Country Park

Latest

We are consulting on the draft strategy of proposals for our public rights of way and countryside sites. Have your say. Ends 29 July 2016.

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

Dogs

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.
