What’s along Worth Way?
Since the closure of the railway in the 1960s, much of it has been colonised by trees such as ash and silver birch. Where chalk was used in the construction of the railway, chalk-loving plants such as Guelder Rose, Common Spotted Orchid, Twayblade and wild strawberry now flourish.
Worth Way offers a ‘green corridor’ for wildlife, connecting different habitats together. Birdsong to listen out for includes the calls of the Chiffchaff and Nuthatch. At Crawley Down Pond there is even the chance of a glimpse of a kingfisher.
Butterflies to look out for include Brimstone, Speckled Wood, Meadow Brown, Ringlet, Skipper and, in June, the White Admiral. Bats can sometimes be seen at dusk. Adders, Grass Snakes and Common Lizards bask in the sunny glades along the old trackside.
