Our work

A volunteer clears scrub on a beautiful downland site to encourage more fragile plants to flourish

See what we've been up to 

Birling Gap is a diverse site with many different elements, including a mix of habitats, a cafe, shop and visitor centre. Protecting the chalk grassland is a delicate job, using traditional methods such as grazing ponies and with lots of help from our volunteers we are care for this rare environment, protecting it for years to come. The shop and cafe provide a welcome stop for our visitors to relax, and every penny of profit goes towards the management of the South Downs countryside.
