The Open Day in the Buriton Chalk Pits Nature Reserve clocked up about 250 different species of plants and creatures in less than 24 hours – including dozens of moths attracted to a special survey site on Saturday evening (see photo).
Villagers in Buriton's "adopted" communuity of Dominase, in Ghana, are seeing more and more improvements in the health of the population, particularly young children, as as result of Buriton’s programme of sanitation projects.
Buriton is an attractive and historic place with a friendly and active community. Walkers, cyclists and horse-riders are welcomed but car parking is very limited, except for customers of the Five Bells or Master Robert Inn.
Visitors by car are encouraged to park elsewhere. There is a public car park just half a mile south of the village at Halls Hill (Grid Reference SU 734198).
Visitors can also park at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, PO8 0QE (Grid Reference SU 719186) and enjoy any of a number of routes into the village.
