Wildlife in The Worthys

Celebrating over 10 years of conservation in The Worthys, WCV has published a special booklet about our local wildlife.  Titled "Wildlife in the Worthys" it gives a unique insight into the flora and fauna and natural history of the upper Itchen valley.  Twelve monthly articles each describe a different aspect of the wildlife and habitats found in the area, beautifully illustrated with photographs and sketches.

South Downs National Park

Stretching from the south coast at Eastbourne to the edge of Winchester taking in the most beautiful chalk downland, the villages of Kings Worthy, Headbourne Worthy, Abbots Worthy and Martyr Worthy all cross into or are totally within the the park.  Not quite sure what it means to conservation and in particular our activities but it is still nonetheless very exciting.  I will create a special page just for this (coming soon!), in the meantime visit these links:
