Map Reference TQ 589 958
There’ll be a short rally at which speakers will explain the issues, the history and natural history of the Eastbourne Downland estate and the threats it faces.
We will put forward an alternative vision for the estate based on the superb past work of Eastbourne Council in increasing public access, and restoring ancient wildlife habitats and landscapes.
We will walk the nearby Downs for a couple of hours to illustrate these issues and have some fun. Walkers can do as much, or as little, of the walk as their time and energy allows.
Bring placards and banners. Let’s make a show of it!
There are public toilets at the car park. Non-Eastbourne residents pay a car park charge. Bring a snack. Dogs must be on leads near farm animals.
STOP THE SALE OF OUR DOWNLAND!
