Petersfield Heath

Minor Manaraefan See as VCal

Secrets of the Heath is a FREE EVENT about sharing the unknown history of South Downs heathland and what makes these rare and beautiful places so special.

Heaths are very rare habitats rich in wildlife and they’re also a fantastic open space for families to explore. But many people don’t realise that they’re under threat and would disappear completely if they aren’t actively managed. This event is a chance for people to come face-to-face with heathland characters from pre-historic to present times. Come and find out how people have lived and worked the heath over thousands of years and how you can play your part today.

Throughout the day there will be a programme of displays and re-enactments in the arena including:

•Roman soldiers •Saxon warriors •Falconry •The highway woman

In addition there will be many stalls and demonstrations from making Stone Age flint tools and birch brooms to meeting the snakes and lizards that inhabit our heathland and the cows and sheep that graze it.

Other highlights will include a bat walk on Saturday evening, have a go archery and even the family dog can get involved, by trying our countryside dog ability course..

Hot snacks, served by the local scout group, will be available to buy along with local beer and ice cream.

No need to book, just turn up on the day.
