Burton and Chingford Ponds

A microcosm of different habitats within one site - various woodland, carr, wet and dry heath, two large ponds and bogs

Just three miles south of Petworth an old water mill overlooks a tranquil 16th century hammer pond, where fishermen punt lazily across the water searching for carp, great crested grebes dive for roach and rudd, and kingfishers splash for the small fry.

Burton and Chingford Ponds is jointly managed by Sussex Wildlife Trust and West Sussex County Council.
