Getting around

Located between Midhurst and Petworth, there are two sites on either side of the Selham to Graffham road. Neither of these have a car park so parking is in the occasional lay-bys along the Selham to Graffham roadside or opposite Fitzlea Wood (eastern site). Please ensure that you park safely and do not block access gates.

Use Traveline to plan your journey to this nature reserve.

The western site is fairly level, but the tracks are not surfaced and can be wet all year round. The eastern site is partly level, with some very steep paths. The ground can be uneven and wet on the low ground. Please keep dogs to paths to protect ground nesting birds. The site is fenced and has gates on all paths.
