Knepp rewilding

Visit Knepp Castle Estate (ticketed)

Thursday 12 May 2016
Arrival time 2pm

Knepp Castle, built by the architect John Nash, is set in the heart of the 3,500 acre Knepp Estate in West Sussex, just south of Horsham. The Estate has been owned by the Burrell family for over 220 years and remains the family home.

Previously devoted to traditional arable and dairy farming, the Estate changed focus in 2001 and embarked on a series of regeneration and restoration projects aimed primarily at nature conservation and a less intensive meat production.

On this visit you will learn about Knepp’s Rewilding Project and take a Wildland Safari tour, to see how large herbivores are driving habitat changes across the Estate.

This visit is limited to 22 guests.

  • 2.00pm – Arrive at Knepp (own transport) and enjoy a presentation about the Rewilding Project
  • 2.30pm – Head out on a Wildland Safari (by vehicle)
  • 3.30pm – Stop for refreshments en route
  • 5.00pm – Return to the Cow Barn

Bring a cool bag if you would like to buy Wildland meat and local produce from the Estate shop.

Cost per person £25. Suitable for those aged 12 years and over. Please come prepared for being outdoors. Venue postcode for directions is RH13 8LJ.
