About Famous Five on the South Downs

5 days, 5 different tasks, 5 different Rangers all in 5 beautiful locations on the South Downs.

Get a real flavour of the South Downs by working at a different property, with different habitats,  different views and a different ranger team every day. From chalk grassland, heathland and woodland and even a day on beautiful East Head on the mouth of Chichester harbour, you will have rangers on tap to soak up the experience and act as your guide book. We hope by the end you will be as smitten as we are with this rolling landscape.
