Welcome to the Steyning Downland Scheme

We manage 165 acres (66 ha) of the Wiston Estate, on the South Downs National Park, near Steyning, West Sussex. A registered charity since 2009, we reconnect local people from all walks of life to our unique piece of species-rich downland, benefiting their mind, body and spirit. We create inspiring opportunities for new people to join the community through active volunteering, engaging events and inclusive access, so improving this special place for wildlife and for present and future generations to enjoy.
