Waterhall Conservation Area is about 15 hectares (38 acres) of chalk downland and scrub. With its extensive views of the downs and woodland walks it is an important resource for all.

Waterhall is the home of Brighton Blues Rugby club. The playing fields can also be hired through our sports bookings system.

Waterhall Local Nature reserve is an important recreational resource for the local population. 

It is in the South Downs National Park and there is a large dew pond which is used by local wildlife. 

Grazing is also an important part of life at Waterhall and we are always looking for more volunteer shepherds.
