Nature at it’s best – A sea of blue and green
Now’s the perfect time to wander through our local woodlands to see and smell the beautiful carpet of bluebells. By early May you’ll have missed the peak so bribe the kids with whatever it takes and get your boots on and head out for a bluebell walk as they won’t be around much longer.
How to find them
There is a stunning display at the bottom of the village. To help you find the woodland I’ve included what3words map locations. These provide precise waypoints to help you navigate the route. What3words address refers to an exact 3m x 3m location. You can download the free to use location app here.
While you’re walking through the woods, don’t forget to look up and admire the lush green tree canopy. The route is a loop, so you’ll end up back where you started.
There are stairs, stiles and exposed tree roots, so not suitable for visitors with limited mobility or families with buggies. You’ll also be crossing the Billingshurst bypass (A29) so cross with caution.

Best time to visit
Early morning & Late Afternoon on sunny days as the light will be spectacular!
The Par Brook stream has fallen trees dotted along the route. The braver younger members of your family are likely to climb and explore. Ferns cover the east bank, giving the area an almost sub-tropical look.
