Last chance to admire the fields of Lordington Lavender in Chichester

Visitors have been flocking to Chichester this week to wander around the beautiful rows of lavender.

Nestled in the South Downs, Lordington Lavender was established in 2002 by local farmer Andrew Elms. After selling his dairy herd he was looking for a new way to diversify, deciding to plant up four acres of Mailette lavender - a French Provencal variety famed for its high quality oil. Lordington Lavender is open until this Sunday (July 14) between 10am-4pm and costs £6 per person (cash only) with under 16s remaining free. You can find out more about Lordington Lavender here.
