About Stepping out in the South DownsConstruction based holiday on the Black Down estate.
You’ll be involved with all aspects of our summer work on the estate, with a particular focus on constructing and repairing infrastructure around the estate. Such countryside craft/construction work usually includes fencing, seat and step building, and restoring pathways, all based in the glorious South Downs National Park.
