There is a large car park situated on Folders Lane East at the southern end of the Park. The map reference for the car park is TQ335181. The nearest train stations are Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield.
There are two ponds at Ditchling Common County Park, and you can fish in both of them. You'll need a rod license from the Environment Agency and a fishing permit from us:

Dogs are welcome but they must be kept under control at all times so that they do not disturb others e.g. children, grazing animals, fishermen and nesting birds.
Please use the dog bins located close to the car park.
