Mill Hill Local Nature Reserve, just north of Shoreham-by-Sea, has outstanding views across the Adur Valley.
In spring and summer, the hill is bursting with wildflowers and butterflies, including the rare Adonis Blue butterfly.
This site is important for its chalk grassland, a rare and diverse habitat, managed in partnership with the South Downs National Park. Today only three per cent of unimproved chalk grassland remains in Sussex.
It is difficult to maintain the grassland to prevent it from overgrowing with scrub when it is not grazed. If the scrub takes over, we will lose many of the indigenous flowers and insects that inhabit the chalk grassland. It is planned to graze the sites with animals for a few weeks during the winter to prevent the loss of grassland.
Mill Hill has a 500-metre easy access trail, which enables less mobile people to enjoy this site.
There are no steps or steep gradients on the trail and benches are located every 150 metres to provide plenty of resting places.
