"protecting, preserving and improving the heritage and environment of Stanmer for the benefit of all"
Stanmer Park is located near Brighton, and consists of 5,000 hectares of wooded and open land. It is mainly open access for walking. The village, with its flint-knapped cottages, was built in the mid-eighteenth century by the earls of Chichester.

Stanmer Preservation Society was founded in 1971 and is a charity committed to improving, protecting and preserving the village of Stanmer and its environment for the benefit of the public. In particular, we look after:

  • Stanmer Church
  • Stanmer Bookstall-Sunday afternoons
  • Wildlife in the park
  • Stanmer Rural Museum Collection and Archive
  • The Donkey Wheel

We also make representations at meetings and enquiries so that Stanmer may remain a place of recreation for the public to enjoy. We are always looking for volunteers to help with any of our activities. 


  • It’s a time of great potential change for Stanmer.  Plans for development are afoot. There has never been a more important time for those who love Stanmer to know what's going on, get involved and speak up.
