Kingley Vale

Kingley Vale is an ancient woodland of Yew trees (thought to be over 500 years old) and offers panoramic views over the county, specifically views over Chichester and Chichester Harbour and the Isle of Wight. The area is also well known for its species of butterflies and birds such as the Red Kite, Buzzard and Owl. In addition, at the top of the hill, the remains of a Bronze Age burial mound is evident. This stunning area is perfect for a walk and to enjoy the views at the top.
