Important oak hornbeam woodland where broad-leaved helleborines and butterflies thrive.
Danemead consists of valley mire, unimproved damp acid grassland, scrub, stream and hornbeam woodland. The wood in which Danemead is located is known to possess significant archaeological and historic interest. The site is bounded by the major Roman road, Ermine Street and by the north end of Martin's Green. The damp meadow at the centre of the site supports a rich variety of wildflowers, including meadowsweet and devil's-bit scabious. Butterflies are abundant and include the white admiral.
