A small reserve full of chalk grassland herbs and grasses, with wonderful views of the surrounding landscape.
This reserve is almost unique, an old chalk pit with good quality herb-rich grassland. The bare chalk has been colonised naturally by fine-leaved fescue grasses and chalk-loving plants such as horseshoe vetch, yellow-wort, milkwort and rockrose. Five species of orchid and the uncommon slender tare are also present. There is a large colony of chalkhill blue butterflies on the reserve, on the wing from mid July.
