Getting around

Located six miles north of Chichester, Levin Down is within walking distance of the villages of Singleton and Charlton via public footpaths.

There is no easy way of visiting Levin Down without walking uphill, but it is worth it. There is a small parking lay-by at the crossroads in Charlton, and a public footpath leads directly across the field to the reserve. Alternatively, a much longer, but less steep walk up the track from the parking area leads to a gate at the north end of the reserve. There are gates at all entrances to the 28 hectare reserve, and most of the many paths involve steep climbs.
