Join Ben Kimpton on a guided walk through the woods at Pippingford Park to learn about the history of Sussex woodland and the wildlife it supports. There will be plenty to learn for both adults and children. Find out why our ancient woodland is so important and who once lived and worked there, visit an ancient badger sett and learn about our common woodland wildflowers and what mice are hiding out.

Ben’s has lived in Sussex for over 20 years and has spent all his life working with nature, in some capacity. In his early years he worked at the Eden Project, on in-between days he loves nothing more than days out doing habitat management and for the last 15 years he has worked as an ecologist. He has studied woodlands, their management and their wildlife and enjoys bringing their history alive for others.
