About the reserve
A small but important urban fringe site containing an area of chalk grassland. Parts of the reserve appear to have been much disturbed in the past but have now been colonised with scrub and woodland. The reserve is managed as part of the Longfield Community Park maintaining the existing areas of chalk grassland and creating small paths and clearings through the scrub. Specific management is occasionally aimed at small-scale disturbance around the grey mouse-ear in order to encourage seed dispersal and germination.
