South Downs National
Stretching from the south coast at
Eastbourne to the edge of Winchester taking in the most beautiful
chalk downland, the villages of Kings Worthy, Headbourne Worthy,
Abbots Worthy and Martyr Worthy all cross into or are totally
within the the park. Not quite sure what it means to
conservation and in particular our activities but it is still
nonetheless very exciting. I will create a special page just
for this (coming soon!), in the meantime visit these links:
