This large Downland site with wooded slopes is situated in Findon Valley and was purchased by the Council in 1957.

The Gallop open space has secured a contribution of £20k from s106 (Developers) for Fitness (gym style) equipment and following consultation with the community, this will be installed in early Winter 2017.  

The Gallops has been designated a Site of Nature and Conservation Interest (SNCI).
