Welcome to SPS
Join SPS and Join the Debate about Stanmer's Future
The Stanmer Preservation Society was founded in 1971 and is a charity committed to improving, protecting and preserving the village of Stanmer and its environment for the benefit of the public. In particular, we look after:
- Stanmer Rural Museum and Donkey Wheel
- Stanmer church
- Stanmer 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.
SPS is grateful to the Sussex Community Foundation for financial support for many of our events.
