SSSIs - Are they an accurate reflection of the current situation, or a convenient tool for local authorities?




Wartling in East Sussex was important during World War Two


It looks like just another hill in the Sussex countryside, but the hill to the right at Wartling in East Sussex, is manmade. The early warning radar station was used to thwart Hitler's plans.





Local MP Greg Barker pledged to fight to protect the Pevensey Levels after listening to local residents from Wartling and the surrounding area who are concerned about new, potentially damaging developments on the marsh.

In a meeting at the Reid Hall in Boreham Street on Friday, Greg met landowners, residents and members of the local Parish Councils to hear their serious concerns over the land use on the Pevensey Levels, a site of Special Scientific Interest.

Greg explained that he will work with Natural England, the Environment Agency and the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to do all he can to ensure that the marshland, also an internationally recognised ‘Ramsar’ site, will not be damaged, or the flora and fauna that live there put at risk.

Speaking from Pevensey, Greg said: “The Pevensey Levels are a unique and special environment. We are their custodians for the next generation and I will fight shoulder to shoulder with local people to protect them from inappropriate building, planting and development.”


The above article on Mr Barker's website, appears to confirm that this prosecution was politically, and judging by the Youtube on Planning Outlaws, racially motivated. We wonder then if Greg Barker should have become involved and why the Police are not taking any action against what seems to us to be incitement to racial hatred? Some of the comments that are recorded as potential evidence, are rather hard to explain any other way. What a shame that Gregory is not so opinionated when it comes to protecting the historic built environment and the rights of farmers to farm their land. The Levels at Pevensey were of course home to RAF Pevensey and RAF Wartling, meaning that what has subsequently been classified as a site of scientific interest, is more likely to have come about from man's intervention in World War Two. Natural England seem to want to ignore our fight against one of the most famous dictators of all time: Adolf Hitler.





The term ‘Pevensey Levels’ refers to the low-lying area between Eastbourne and Bexhill in East Sussex. It is a wetland of national and international conservation importance and 37 per cent of the National Character Area (NCA) is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Ramsar site. The Levels are predominantly rural and mostly grazed pasture, and consist of extensive drainage networks and flood plain. The NCA also includes the urban centre of Eastbourne which is a busy seaside town with a population of nearly 100,0004 and up to 5 million visitors each year. A coastline of shingle beach stretches along the length of the area, punctuated by settlements, historic military buildings and sea defence structures.

The area is framed by the steep scarp of the South Downs in the west and the higher ground of the High Weald in the north, with views of the English Channel to the south. Much of the Pevensey Levels was under water until the medieval period and the whole area is low lying and vulnerable to the effects of climate change, particularly coastal flooding. Sea defences consist mainly of open beach managed by periodic shingle replenishments, maintenance of groynes, recycling of material around the beach and re-profiling during and after storms. In the long term, these measures may need reviewing as sea levels rise. Managing the environmentally important Pevensey Levels is dependent on careful and continuous water management through a system of sluices and pumps.


Recently, the pumping arrangements have failed leading to flooding. This has not been adequately addressed and the population of Lapwings is not as stated when the area was classified in 1990. The whole Unit should therefore be re-assessed as a matter of some urgency.





Wealden has a terrible reputation when it comes to discrimination. The pattern emerging seems to be that they target gypsies who own land and foreigners. The Wealden Action Group was formed in the 1990s to keep an eye open for planning favors, which of course means unfavorable treatment for others. Pevensey Levels is an area where we suspect foul play.


The tactics involve all the agencies working together to apply pressure to the unlucky recipient. It matters not one bit if such use of authority is lawful, nor if it is waste of the taxpayers money.


NCA Profile:124 Pevensey Levels (NE478)


The levels at Pevensey are criss-crossed with access tracks, bunkers and other concrete and brick buildings, many of which are sub-surface.




This area had been designated of scientific interest, with little regard to the industrial archaeology remaining from Word War Two and the Cold War that followed. RAF Wartling was a significant subterranean installation to provide early warning of bombing raids and the like.



Staff member responsible for SSSI unit: Cath Jackson

Unit ID: 1030523

Unit area: 130 hectares

Main habitat: Fen, marsh and swamp - lowland

Condition: Unfavourable recovering

Latest assessment date: 17 September 2012

Condition assessment comment: Condition for Pevensey Levels is accorded on a whole-site basis. The condition is unfavourable recovering because: a significant area of the site is in agri-environment scheme therefore appropriate management is in place; water levels will be addressed through implementation of the Water Level Management Plan; alien species present will be addressed through invasive weed strategy.

Reasons for Notification:

Pevensey Levels is a large area of low-lying grazing meadows intersected by a complex system of ditches which show a wide variety of form and species composition and support important communities of wetland flora and fauna. The site supports one nationally rare and several nationally scarce aquatic plants and many nationally rate
invertebrates. Ornithologically, the site is of national importance as the number of wintering lapwings has regularly exceeded 1% of the total British population in recent years.

Geologically, the Levels are located where impervious Weald Clay reaching the coast has been overlain by superficial alluvial deposits. In places, however, the Weald Clay itself forms out-crops, as at Hooe Eye, and Tunbridge Wells Sands reach the surface occasionally, as on part of Horse Level. Once an area of intertidal mud flats, the Levels have developed in turn to salt marsh and fresh water marsh. This process has been aided by the deposition of shingle beach deposits, by the process of longshore drift, along the present coastline. This shingle ridge now protects the Levels from sea water inundation, since most of the site lies below the level of highest tide. Past intersection of the marshes by a series of ditches has created the present-day area of rich grazing meadows.

The ditch system facilitates removal of surface water to enable successful stock grazing, at the same time acting as a network of ‘wet fences’ and as a source of stock drinking water. Maintenance of the ditches is necessary to continue efficient execution of these functions and also creates a wide variety of ditch types from intensively or 
recently dredged ditches to neglected ones. In this way a wide variety of floral conditions prevail and the specific requirements of certain invertebrates are always catered for. Following the dredging of a clogged ditch a distinct successional pattern occurs. First, floating and submerged aquatic plants such as duckweeds Lemna sp, pondweeds Potamogeton sp, or water fern Azolla sp, colonize. 


These are followed by larger, floating or emergent plants such as frog-bit Hydrocharis morsus-ranae, bur reed Sparganium erectum and arrow-head Sagittaria sagittifolia. Finally, common reed Phragmites australis becomes dominant at the expense of most other species. If left undredged the ditches may dry up and become scrubbed over with drastic effects on plant and animal diversity.

The most species-rich ditches show a varied structure and a good mixture of both open water and emergent species. The broad-leaved pondweed Potamogeton natans and frog-bit are abundant, whilst the nationally rare* sharp-leaved pondweed Potamogeton acutifolius (RDB:** Vulnerable) is of particular importance. Other open
water species include ivy-duckweed Lemna trisulca and the nationally scarce + water-soldier Stratiotes aloides and flat-stalked pondweed Potamogeton friesii. Numerous other pondweeds are found here including shining pondweed Potamogeton lucens, curled pondweed P. crispus and blunt-leaved pondweed P. obtusifolius. Emergents of interest include the nationally scarce greater water-parsnip Sium latifolium and river water-dropwort Oenanthe fluviatilis . These very species-rich ditches are largely confined to gravity-drained areas within the site.

The main arterial channels, which carry drainage water from the Levels to the sea, are generally poor in vegetation, both in number of species and cover. Submerged and floating species such as common duckweed Lemna minor and greater duckweed Lemna polyrhiza predominate with the nationally scarce spineless hornwort Ceratophyllum submersum and the nationally scarce pondweed Potamogeton trichoides also present. Ditches surrounding and within arable areas support relatively few open-water species and tend to be characterised by the presence of water plantain Alisma plantago-aquatica and bur-reed. They are often fringed with hard rush Juncus inflexus and jointed rush J. articulatus.

Rich bankside floras support the nationally scarce marshmallow Althaea officinalis, ragged robin Lychnis flos-cuculi, water mint Mentha aquatica and cuckoo flower Cardamine pratensis. Most of the fields are improved rye grass Lolium perenne leys with occasional creeping bent Agrostis stolonifera.

Woodland dividing the modern main Pevensey to Middle Bridge Road from the old road parallel to it is dominated by mature crack willow Salix fragilis with hawthorn Crataegus monogyna and elder Sambucus nigra scrub. Closed canopies have a sparse ground cover of ground ivy Glechoma hederacea and nettle Urtica dioica. This area is of importance for moths.

An area of shingle and intertidal muds and sands is included within the site. Although the shingle is largely bereft of vegetation, yellow horned-poppy Glaucium flavum, sea campion Silene maritima and the nationally scarce sea-kale Crambe maritima do occur; there is also a record for pyramidal orchid Anacamptis pyramidalis.

The site supports outstanding invertebrate populations and is a top national site for Molluscs and aquatic Coleoptera. Indeed, the site is perhaps the best in Britain for freshwater Mollusc fauna. A ramshorn snail Segmentina nitida (RDB: Endangered), is found in well-oxygenated drains with lush vegetation. Particularly widespread and abundant on this site is an aquatic snail Valvata macrostoma (RDB: Vulnerable). 


Of the many species of water beetle recorded at the site, the most interesting are confined to the ditches in areas of permanent pasture. Of particular interest is Britain’s largest water beetle, the great silver water beetle Hydrophilus piceus (RDB: Rare) which is found only on grazed levels in the southern part of Britain. Also of importance is Bagous puncticollis (RDB: Endangered), found on Horse Eye Level and several nationally rare water beetles such as the small reddish-brown Hydrovatus clypealis (RDB: Rare) confined to the coast of southern England.

Over fifteen species of dragonfly (Odonata) have been recorded including the nationally scarce species, hairy dragonfly Brachytron pratense and variable damselfly Coenagrion pulchellum . Survey has also revealed Britain’s only known location of Placobdella costata (provisional RDB), a large leech which feeds on the blood of vertebrates. One of Britain’s largest spiders Dolomedes plantarius (RDB: Endangered) has also been recorded.

The site is of national importance for its wintering lapwing Vanellus vanellus which exceed 1% of the total British population. The numbers of snipe Gallinago gallinago may also be of national importance but exact data relating to the country’s wintering population is as yet unavailable. Wintering golden plover Pluvialis apricaria are of local significance and in some years are of national importance. Sedge warblers Acrocephalus schoenobaenus and reed warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus which nest in scrub close to water and reeds in the ditches respectively, breed in numbers of local significance. The site also supports about one fifth of the breeding yellow wagtails Motacilla flava in Sussex.








The above document has not been updated with fresh information as to migration and nesting, given the climate change from global warming in the intervening 23 years since 1990. It is unclear if the 1977 notification was reassessed in 1990 - with the benefit of proper collated figures as to actual levels of populations, or, whether the notification was simply rubber stamped for convenience.


Either way, where prosecutions are being based on out of date statistics and use, those prosecutions are poorly found and may well be an abuse of process.

Solicitors for Natural England brought farming to a halt on Pevensey Levels, then sent a letter claiming that they had no intention of stopping farming. What utter rubbish. They say one thing and do another. Hypocrisy is ingrained in most local authorities so much that they almost believe their own line of twaddle.

Natural England told this farmer that he could build a bridge from one side of his pond to another, then made him lower it twice - without specifying a height of build. Finally, after pushing the issue, Sue Beale took advice from solicitors and then (only then) said 10cm. Why didn't Natural England say this in the beginning, rather than use this point as an excuse to prosecute the farmer. We say the reason is obvious, they set the farmer up for a fall. Is that then a malicious prosecution?



Joe Horwood


Dr Joe Horwood

Appointed: 1 October 2009 - Until: 30 September 2015


Responsibilities include: Lead Board member for marine and the Broads Authority.

He has published on a variety of marine issues including whales, fisheries and marine protected areas.




Solicitors for Natural England forced farming to come to a halt, where they insisted that this farmer remove his deer proof barrier. Not only that, but they then refused to indemnify the farmer - knowing only too well that his herd of deer would then be free to escape, and that is exactly what happened. We say that such abuses of a position of trust does Natural England no favours in the long term. Their short term objective to cause the farmer huge losses, so that farming became untenable, is nothing short of bullying and discriminatory practices.

And yet more farm animals that no longer have a farm to stay on. Natural England have done all within their power to bring about a halt to farming on the Pevensey Levels. It's nothing short of economic vandalism. And, look at all the smiling faces on this page. Would they be laughing if someone did this to them?
