Malling Down, 2017-18

Malling Down is a small area of nature reserve situated on the South Downs National Park between the county town of Lewes, and the village of Ringmer in East Sussex. Because of efforts to conserve its appearance and the ecosystem within Malling Down has taken on the role of a transitional landscape, becoming neither part of the towns that surround it nor the areas of outstanding natural beauty that lie beyond it, and instead forming a marginal space between the two filled with signs of human intervention.
