About the reserve

This ancient semi-natural woodland, rich in wildlife, sits on the southeast side of a dry slope valley. Most of the upper slopes and plateau have been converted to sweet chestnut coppice with a few oak standards. The greatest diversity of woodland flora is found on the lowest slopes where the chalk has its biggest impact in reducing soil acidity.
