Getting around

The reserve is situated about five miles north of Petworth. There is a car park at Ebernoe Church, off Streel’s Lane from which you can access the reserve. The ground is flat, but can be muddy, and there are one or two stiles in the boundary fences. The areas to the east and south are farmland under conversion to pasture woodland, with many footpaths providing pleasant walks throughout, best accessed from the Balls Cross-Northchapel road.
