One can walk or drive to this wooded reserve just north of Lancing along a tarmac road that leads to a car park. The reserve is composed of patches of shrubs, woodland, wildflower meadows and a dew pond. It gets its name "Lancing Ring" because a ring of beeches were planted in the late 18th century inspired by the nearby Cissbury Ring. Many of these beeches were blown down in the 1987 storm but many more trees have been planted some as recently as 2012 to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
