A green alternative to a traditional cemetery

Set in 15 acres of countryside you can be part of a new English wood that will be protected from development, within the South Downs National Park.

Opened in 2008 below the Jack and Jill Windmills, the beautiful site has various dedicated areas for natural burial and cremated remains, as well as memorial scattering lawns, surrounded by native trees for future generations to enjoy.

The aim is to establish a new native english wood in the heart of the Sussex countryside. Young growing trees lock more carbon and are better able to deal with possible climate change.There is a fully staffed office on the grounds with waiting room, rest room facilities and large carpark.

A natural burial ground

As part of our commitment to sustainable management, we are working with the Wildlife Trust to develop a long-term conservation plan. Our aim is to create beautiful natural native woodland that will link up with two other existing woods, creating migration corridors for wildlife.

The beautiful area is manned full time and no appointment necessary to visit burial ground, with dogs more than welcome as long as they are kept on a lead.
