Come and join us for a walk around this stunning private site which houses one of the best chalk streams in Sussex. This rare chalk ghyll stream also has a range of chalk pools and ponds which have been slowly restored from a polluted trout fishery, to an incredible wetland site over the last few years. The site is one of the hidden gems of Sussex. We will start on the old trout lake, and make our way up the almost prehistoric, fern covered, chalk spring fed ghyll, spotting dragonflies and damselflies on the way. The unique ecology of the chalk water should yield some interesting finds.
susssDepending on numbers and the weather, we may visit an alternative site in the afternoon.
