Stanmer Preservation Society, founded in 1971, is a registered charity committed to improving, protecting and preserving the village of Stanmer and its environment for the benefit of the public. In particular we care for the church, the Stanmer Rural museum collection,the donkey wheel and the wildlife.

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.

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.
