Tottington Woodlanders are an active group of conservation volunteers who manage 13 acres of ancient woodland in Small Dole.
The main objective of the work that the Woodlanders carry out is to restore Tottington Wood as it was in the past and as a result produce quality timber and thus products. As a result of putting the wood back into a coppice cycle, the habitat is improved which therefore benefits and supports the local wildlife. This will hopefully increase the numbers of species present and perhaps encourage the return of those previously lost.
Tottington Woodlanders is a registered charity and affiliated to the Sussex Wildlife Trust and the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers.
