Most of our events are free, though donations are always welcome to help fund our work. Every penny you donate supports conservation.
However, because our indoor talks involve hall hire and speaker costs, for these we charge non-members £3 each and members £2 each, but entrance is free to under-16s.
Batchelors Farm Meadows
General: This site of 13 hectares, owned by Burgess Hill Town Council, lies to the south of Burgess Hill and Greenlands Drive and adjacent to the east side of the railway line. The water tower is a prominent landmark on the site. It is connected by a bridge over the railway (no motor vehicles) to Nightingale Meadows to the west. It comprises meadows, hedgerows, a stream and a pond. It has excellent views of The South Downs and in particular the Jack and Jill Windmills on Clayton Hill.
An information leaflet and a separate self-guided walk leaflet are in the process of being devised by the Friends in conjunction with Burgess Hill Town Council. The existing management plan is currently being updated.
