This 573 acre (282 hectare) site offers an engaging and varied mix of habitats, set in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ancient and newly planted woodland, carpets of wildflowers throughout the spring and summer, open rides and chalk grassland areas are all home to a wide variety of wildlife. These include twenty one species of butterfly such as the rare purple hairstreak which is regularly seen feeding on aphid honey dew throughout July. Three species of bat live in the old chalk pits in the ancient part of the wood, and ten bird species listed on the UK’s Biodiversity Action Plan make their home here, including the turtle dove, skylark and song thrush.
