Welcome to Wild Wadhurst, a website for people interested in the wildlife and wildflowers of Wadhurst, East Sussex. We are very lucky to live in a town that is surrounded by countryside that is abundant with all sorts of birds, insects, mammals, flowers and fungi. The aim of this site is to give you information on what’s around and where to see it, as well as perhaps improve your knowledge of the wild things around us and give ideas on what you could do to help.

Sign up to receive our email newsletter – email wildwadhurst@mail.com with ‘mailing list’ in the subject.

Why not join in our Community Nature Reserve aim – read about it here.
