Last weeks dusting of snow did not last beyond lunchtime. However the forecast tonight looks altogether different with up to 10cm expected across the South.

inevitably people think of Butser Hill, the highest point on the South Downs, at times like this and dust off the old sledge.

If the Park has to close, or if the local road links are impassable then blog posts will give all details possible.



For dog walkers the following information about livestock on Butser Hill is relevant;

Due to the expected snow and the frozen water troughs all the beef cattle have been moved from the site. The main ewe flock is grazing in Grandfathers Bottom, the steep valley to the west of Butser. And a flock of ewe lambs is grazing in Wascombe, a sheltered valley to the south of the hill.

Where livestock are grazing all entrance points (stiles and kissing gates) will be signed accordingly.
