Wild Side of the Track

The Deneway Nature Reserve is a linear greenspace stretching along over half a kilometre of the main rail link between London and Brighton. A former brownfield site, it is a valuable urban environment consisting of secondary woodland, mixed scrub and grassland.  

Due to the location the site is closed to the public unless accompanied by Sussex Wildlife Trust staff.  Thanks to funding from the ScottishPower Foundation we are able to run a series of events throughout 2019 and 2020 for habitat management, community events and school visits.

There is a wide variety of opportunities for the community to learn skills, volunteer and experience nature through Forest School sessions, practical conservation and wildlife habitat improvements in school grounds and at The Deneway Nature Reserve.
