I can't wait to see the reponses that this produces, I am already holding my sides in readiness for the wit that is about to be unleashed, BUT. . . . . does anyone know where I can get good well rotted manure for my garden ? Thanks you.

Hamsey Riding School, along Brighton Road, used to have a sign outside advertising well rotted manure. I assume it's still there. Give them a ring.

I shall keep stoom, but what an opportunity. Good luck with your searching.

Good question Rods Tiger. There are quite a few places that advertise well rotted manure but is it really well rotted? I doubt it, especially at those places where it appears a few sacks at a time on the roadside.

Bevern Bridge Stables at South Chailey often have bags outside, but not this week. They charge £2 a bag though!
I often pick up a bag for OH's mum - she thinks it's the best present ever.

Last winter I collected free from a riding stables off Cinder Lane. A275 thru Sth Chailey, turn right just before the Five Bells. The first entrance on the left after Roeheath. The stables are at the end of the track. The first time I went I walked up to the house to ask and was told by the owner that I could bring a ten ton truck if I wanted to load up. Leave some for me if you go.

About time you made another appearance, Captain.
Doubt if banks burn as well as barns though.

I can vouch for Dennis's manure. But depending on which bit you dig, it's not really well rotted. Great to spread overwinter to break down on allotment thought, just don't put it directly onto plants, give it 6 months before growing anything in. I'll be getting my load soon !

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
