Sunday morning in Stanmer Park

Stanmer Park, nestling to the North of Brighton next to the Sussex University campus, sits in the South Downs National Park. It gets a bit more human attention than most of the rest of the South Downs, but it's not manicured. I think of it as Brighton's Hampstead Heath.

There are vast open spaces but on a breezy bright but cool Spring day, still recovering from a bout of flu, the woods take the edge off the breeze while still allowing the sun to add some extra warmth.

We were not expecting to find a rusting burned out abandoned car

So many man made shelters
  A lot of Bushcraft being practiced in these parts!

And this time of year an awful lot of bluebells.

Extensive antler like roots from an upended tree

Photos from Stanmer Park and Falmer will feature in my East Brighton gallery.
