Reasons to Visit Steyning, near Brighton:

Explore Norman History!

St Andrew and St Cuthman’s Church in Steyning was built by the Normans from the 1080’s.

The size of the church is an indication of Steyning’s importance. It was a major town in early Sussex. Admire the wonderful dog toothed decoration on the Norman arches inside the church!

Go down Church Street off Steyning High Street to find this church.

This picture shows the beautiful church of St Leonard in South Stoke village, near Arundel, West Sussex.. It was recorded in the Domesday Book – a great land survey from 1086, commissioned by William the Conqueror – when the village was named as "Stoches".

To find the church head for Arundel then travel down Mill Road until the road ends in a t-junction. Turn left, following the signpost to South Stoke. Go beyond the entrance to the farm and turn left with the road – the gate to the church is down a (signposted) short pathway to the right, about one hundred yards further on. Well worth finding!

Spend time at Knepp Safari's in wild Sussex!

Spend time at Knepp Safari's in wild Sussex!

Knepp Safaris offer half day trips round their estate near Dial Post. Your safari will take you to the current ‘hot spots’ of natural interest.

You’re likely to see at least some large herbivores – longhorn cattle, Exmoor ponies, Tamworth pigs, red and fallow deer – as they roam freely in large herds through the Wildland. Birds are also present in huge numbers all year round.

You will check trail cameras for our more secretive residents like foxes, badgers, hedgehogs, weasels and stoats; and stop for a species count at some of their wildlife ‘refugia’ for slow-worms, grass-snakes, toads, field-mice and voles. Spectacular tree-platforms offer panoramic views and a close-up of life in the canopy.

You travel in an open-sided 14 seater Pinzgauers for larger groups or an open-air all–terrain 5-seater Kawasaki,. Mule. Half-way through your safari they stop for coffee, tea and their popular organic homemade cake!
