Stop Cissbury Sell Off

Our website has a map of the for-sale Downland:


against the proposed selling of Worthing Council-owned Downland around Cissbury Ring


SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14th,  11.00am

Speakers include: Kate Ashbrook, redoubtable Director of the Open Spaces Society, & Marion Shoard, countryside author & national campaigner.

Press and TV will be there, so we need maximum turn-out to demonstrate our opposition to the loss of this public landscape.

We will walk up onto the for-sale land and hold a short meeting.

Bring the family and all your friends, and anything to make a show - banners, placards, balloons...


For those who have time we will then take a walk across  Mount Carvey, Cissbury Ring and back down Tenants Hill to view the for-sale Downland and talk through how we wish to see it improved under Worthing's ownership. 

The walk will be around 4.5 miles, but folk who do not wish to walk the whole way can easily return at several points. 

The walk will cross a Council-owned field that has a statutory right of public access but has been closed to the public, contrary to the law, for the last 4 years.
