Title: Friston Forest
Description: Covering more than 2000 acres (800 hectares) of the South Downs, this forest was started in 1926 when the first broad-leaved trees were planted. Part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that covers a great deal of the area, Friston Forest is fast becoming one of the finest beech forests in Southern England. The pine trees, which were planted to protect the young beech, are slowing being removed and a number of plants, which are only found in chalk, have also become established. A good number of footpaths and way-marked trails can be found here and car parking and picnic areas are available in the nearby Seven Sisters Country Park.
