Dog Friendly Sussex: Enclosed field for dogs opens in Littlehampton

An enclosed field for dogs has opened up in Littlehampton.

Bridge Meadow Secure Dog Field, situated next to the Six Bells Pub in Lyminster Road, will enable local dog-owners to be safe in the knowledge that their pooches can play and have fun in a fully enclosed area.

Surrounded by 6ft fencing, the field has been designed especially for dogs who cannot be off-lead in public places but is ‘perfect for all dogs’.

In addition, there are obstacles and agility equipment on offer to entertain your dog, as well as fresh water and a canopy for cooling off after playing.

The team behind Bridge Meadow are couple Simon and Anna Geraghty, who also own grooming business K9 Styles in Arcade Road.

Simon said: “We have always said there isn’t enough safe places to let dogs off lead in Littlehampton so we made one, and I think it will be really good for the community.”

He added that before they ‘transformed’ the field, it was ‘completely overgrown and a bit of an eye sore’.

The three-acre field is available to hire for private use seven days a week and an hour-long slot can be booked online for £12.
