Restoring Sussex woodlands

The Lost Woods project is bringing local people together to learn about, explore, and care for woods across the Low Weald and Downs.

Together, we can reconnect with our ancient woodlands and revive, restore, and protect them for future generations.

Welcome to the Lost Woods

Sited between two designated landscapes in Sussex, the Lost Woods are fragmented, threatened and in need of our protection.
