About the reserve
With sublime views over the Weald of Kent, this reserve consists of an area of chalk grassland, an area of woodland and two disused chalk pits. The chalk pits provide good shelter for birds in winter and breeding sites in summer. Some species of orchid can be seen in the woodland and kestrels breed in the chalk cliffs. Various different insects can be observed here
