Get close to nature at the Knebb Estate
Rewilding at the Knebb Estate, just south of Horsham, West Sussex, began in 2001. Their aim is to establish an ecosystem where nature is given as much freedom as possible.
Rare species E.g. nightingales and purple emperor butterflies, are now breeding here and numbers of common species have increased substantially.
They have recently been successful in having white storks nest and bring up their young on the estate. White storks lived in the area many years ago with name of the local town Storrington being based on ‘stork’.
