About the reserve
With lovely views across the Stour valley, Broadham Down consists of chalk grassland, scrub and woodland, and having been heavily scrubbed over management is aimed at reclaiming this open habitat. In 2006, the first colony of the black-veined moth was recorded for the first time in over forty years. At least three kinds of bats are known to hibernate here.
