Littlewood lookout is a round-wood timber framed structure, specifically designed to blend into its landscape and provide a window out on to The Rise of Northwood, the wider Slindon Estate, the South Downs and its associated habitats and history.
The sweet chestnut frame, rafters and wall lathes, red cedar shingle roof and central oak tree have all been sustainably sourced from our estate.
The construction of this building has only been possible with the help of the South Downs National Parks Authority (SDNPA) Sustainable Community Fund (SCF), the skill of Artizans of Wood and the participation of the Slindon Estate team and volunteers.
The building was officially opened in December 2018, with over 40 people in attendance, a mixture from the village, our volunteers and representatives from the South Downs National Park Authority.
With final works to the main frame now complete, we hope that people will come and enjoy unspoilt views of the growing woodland and wood pasture, take shelter from the elements, or spend time watching the wildlife make their homes in the developing Northwood.
