About the reserve
Probably one of the most species-rich chalk grassland reserves in Surrey, this private nature reserve is situated on chalk scarpland with thick patches of hawthorn scrub.
The open areas are managed as chalk downland and include spotted, fragrant, pyramidal, fly, man, bee and greater butterfly orchids in addition to a rich variety of typical chalkland plants.
Much of the Trust's conservation work concentrates on scrub clearance which is necessary to maintain and increase the chalk downland habitat.
A large area of woodland also stretches from the north-west to the south-east of the reserve. Composed predominantly of beech and ash with field maple, whitebeam, hazel and spindle, the woodland extends to the North Downs Way on the east side of the reserve.
Both woodland and open grassland are rich in insects, especially butterflies.
Over 56 species of birds have been recorded on the reserve.
