How to find us at Stanmer Park

Attention: open in a new window. | Print | E-mail

Brighton Permaculture Trust uses a number of venues at Stanmer Park, including Earthship Brighton, Plumpton College, the council offices, our orchards and our plot at Stanmer Organics.

All are difficult to find, and council security gates en route may be locked, so we meet people on the grassy area on the other side of the road at the tower end of the church.

If you are meeting here for a course/event, please make every effort to be on time, as we will be unable to wait for you. Please note that it is nearly 30 minutes walk from Falmer station or the bus stops at the entrance to the park.

The orchards are accessible at any time, and the Orchard Barn in Stanmer Village is a little easier to find. Directions to these locations can be found at the bottom of this page.

Please travel by public transport if you can.

Directions to Stanmer Park

Stanmer Park is located near Falmer, on the outskirts of Brighton, next to the University of Sussex. The best postcode, if you are using sat nav, is BN1 9QA, which is Stanmer House, within sight and a very short distance from our meeting place by the church.

When you get to Stanmer Park

It is around a mile from the entrance of Stanmer park to the meeting point at the church (allow 30 minutes to walk). Cycle/walk/drive up the main road through the middle of the park. Take the left-hand fork where the road splits (a one-way system). You will see Stanmer Church in front of you. If travelling by car, continue around the church to the car park behind it. Car parking is free.

Meeting Point
If we have arranged to meet you, please meet us on the grassy area on the other side of the road at the tower end of the church. Please do not be late.

Orchards
The path to the Home Farm Orchard is across the grassy area on the other side of the road at the tower end of the church. Please do not help yourself to fruit, and please close the gate. To find the Old Stanmer Orchard, turn left at the entrance to Brighton & Hove City Council nurseries, go down the side of the Plumpton College Glasshouse, and then turn right into the orchard at the end of the wall.

Orchard Barn
Follow the road towards Stanmer Village and the tea rooms, pass the old farm house and a stable yard on the left, and we are there on the left. The barn is not signed, but, if we are there, it will be open.
