Castle Hill Wildlife Walk – exploring Woodingdean’s backgarden!

For a couple of hours on Sunday, Peggy will be supervising our dig whilst I join Huw Morgan on a guided walk around Castle Hill nature reserve. He will be calling in on our dig on his way back. For those interested it will be a great opportunity to discover some of the wildlife and history of one of the best downland nature reserves in Europe – just a 10 minute walk away from Woodingdean!

Castle Hill Wildlife Walk; Sunday 21st July, 11:00 – 13:00 . Part of the Brighton Community Wildlife Project. Come and explore the beautiful countryside on Woodingdean’s doorstep. Join a guided walk around Castle Hill nature reserve and discover the plants and insects that call it home. Bring a camera!

Meet at car park near junction of Falmer Road and Bexhill Road. To book a place please call Huw on 07771 375273 or email

Donations appreciated.

Huw’s latest project is to encourage Woodingdeaners – of all ages and backgrounds – to get involved with their local wildlife:

Helping Wildlife and Conservation in Woodingdean

This is an appeal from Brighton’s new People and Wildlife Officer for Sussex Wildlife Trust, Huw Morgan:

Does anyone want to get involved with a wildlife and conservation project in Woodingdean? I’m looking for ideas for a project in Woodingdean from those that live here. From walks, talks, wildlife gardening, practical work and surveying I’d like to hear what people are interested in and fancy getting involved with.

Please send any ideas to Huw Morgan, People & Wildlife Officer, Sussex Wildlife Trust on 01273 290393 or 07771 375 273 or email
