Lichens are often the first colonisers of bare rock surfaces so churchyards constitute an important habitat for them, as there are a variety of different stone types.  Dates on headstones allow the rate of growth and sequence of colonisation to be studied.

Directions: Park around Chiddingfold Green (near Church). Meet at lychgate. A hand lens recommended.
