Getting around

Situated two miles south of Henfield. The entrance to the car park is on Horn Lane off the A2037.

Car parking is limited at Woods Mill so it is appreciated if visitors can car share or use public transport where practical.

We would be grateful if organised groups that are planning to use our car park should please contact us in advance as some days are very busy with school visits, volunteers and courses. The car park often reaches full capacity with these booked–in groups and we don’t want to disappoint visitors. This is particularly the case on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during term time

Access to the offices and toilets is suitable for people with disabilities, as is the nature reserve with an all-weather path and boardwalk across lake and reedbed. As this is an educational nature reserve no dogs (except assistance dogs) are permitted.
