This will be followed by an optional short training course in Pearl-bordered Fritillary monitoring and habitat assessment.

  • There’s a very gentle slope but some rutted areas and trip hazards, so unsuitable for wheelchair access
  • Strong footwear essential
  • Distance: 1.5km (1 mile) walk
  • Suitable for children
  • Sorry, no dogs

Meet at the sawmill in the southern part of Rewell Wood, Grid ref: SU983076, nearest postcode BN18 0AL.

  • This is accessed via a concealed turning off the eastbound A27 dual carriageway between Fontwell and Arundel
  • The turning is marked by a thick overhead cable crossing the dual carriageway
  • Extreme caution must be exercised on both entry and exit
  • Drive up the track through the open gate (locked after 6.30 pm) until you reach the sawmill
