Local Sheep Fair this weekend

Findon Sheep Fair takes place annually in Findon Village on the second Saturday of the month. The next fair is this Saturday 9th September 2017

Festivities start on Friday evening with a funfair on the green and a Barn Dance in the marquee

Saturday is the fair itself, with...

FREE ADMISSION!
(car parking £4)

There are craft stalls, sheep displays, sheep judging, a funfair, food stalls, and many other displays on the green.

In the evening, you can dance to live music from the popular local band Murdoch's Crazy Eyes in the marquee (admission by pre-paid ticket)

History

The sheep fair started in 1875 on Nepcote Green in Steyning. From 1925 sheep were driven in large flocks over the downs to Steyning train station for delivery but this stopped when the Steyning line was sadly closed in the 1960's. Gradually lorries took over and sheep are no longer delivered on foot in the traditional way.

The breed of sheep used to be almost all Southdown's, but these have tended to be replaced with other breeds and in recent years the most popular rams are Suffolk's.

How to get to Findon from Steyning

Travel by car via A283 and A24. It should take about 13 min (7.6 miles)

Explore small 11th century churches in rural Sussex

This picture shows the beautiful church of St Leonard in South Stoke village, near Arundel, West Sussex.. It was recorded in the Domesday Book - a great land survey from 1086, commissioned by William the Conqueror - when the village was named as "Stoches".

To find the church head for Arundel then travel down Mill Road until the road ends in a t-junction. Turn left, following the signpost to South Stoke. Go beyond the entrance to the farm and turn left with the road - the gate to the church is down a (signposted) short pathway to the right, about one hundred yards further on. Well worth finding!

South Stoke is about a half hour drive from Steyning and close to the South Downs.

Spend time at Knepp Safari's in wild Sussex!

Knepp Safaris offer half day trips round their estate near Dial Post. Your safari will take you to the current ‘hot spots’ of natural interest.

You’re likely to see at least some large herbivores – longhorn cattle, Exmoor ponies, Tamworth pigs, red and fallow deer – as they roam freely in large herds through the Wildland. Birds are also present in huge numbers all year round.

You will check trail cameras for their more secretive residents like foxes, badgers, hedgehogs, weasels and stoats; and stop for a species count at some of their wildlife ‘refugia’ for slow-worms, grass-snakes, toads, field-mice and voles. Spectacular tree-platforms offer panoramic views and a close-up of life in the canopy.

You travel in an open-sided 14 seater Pinzgauers for larger groups or an open-air all–terrain 5-seater Kawasaki,. Mule. Half-way through your safari they stop for coffee, tea and their popular organic homemade cake!

Learn to kite surf near Brighton? Or just relax on the beach!

A relatively new sport that first gained popularity in the late 90′s, kitesurfing is a mixture between windsurfing, surfing, wake boarding and power kiting. Different size kites allow you to kite surf in various wind strengths. The lighter the wind, the bigger the kite and in stronger winds smaller kites are used

Courses are held at the South Coast’s premier kitesurfing location - Lancing Beach in Sussex, one hour from London, twenty minutes from Brighton. The shallow flat water and prevailing cross onshore winds provide perfect conditions for novices

Details at http://www.brightonkitesurfandsupacademy.com/

Steyning is in West Sussex at the foot of the South Downs National Park & is only 6 miles from the beach at Lancing
