Ditchling Beacon Nature Reserve
A spectacular 20 hectare reserve on the escarpment of the South Downs with spectacular views.
Wildlife Highlights: Brown argus, green hairstreak, common and chalkhill blue butterflies. Whitethroat and yellowhammer thrive. The downland is great for beetles, bees and other insects.
Access: The easiest access is from the National Trust car park at the top of the reserve, from which runs a bridleway along the plateau. This also forms part of the South Downs Way. A path also leads to a small car park on Underhill Lane. These other paths are steep, slippery and have some stiles. The road through the reserve is too dangerous for walking.
These maps are intended as a guideline only; you must check the exact location of the reserve yourself. Wildlife Extra assumes no responsibility for the accuracy or usefulness of the information on this website.
