Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.


The UK’s youngest and most populated National Park provides an extensive range of social and physical research opportunities. From pristine habitats to Bronze Age barrows, all set in a context of competing pressure from urbanisation and recreation, the potential for on the ground, impact driven research is vast.

The South Downs National Park Authority wishes to connect with academics and practitioners to ensure our work to conserve and enhance the natural and cultural heritage of the landscape is routed in methodologically robust research, using the most appropriate techniques.
