South Downs Society

We are the National Park Society for the South Downs, the only charity dedicated to protecting the whole of the National Park and its heritage.


We are guardians of this landscape; from Winchester and the steep hanger country of Hampshire, embracing the heaths of the Western Weald, across Sussex to Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters.


Independent & member led we were founded in 1923 and are as passionate today, as were our founders, that the South Downs should be available for the enjoyment of all as well as future generations.
