One of the most striking features of the site is its red chalk, which is most visible in the area of the site that is a disused pit. However, this red chalk is gradually becoming covered with vegetation and is less visible than it has been in previous years.
Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on leads from March to the end of July in order to protect ground nesting birds. There are some areas that dogs may not access, and it is important to take note of the signs and respect the boundaries.
There is limited parking outside the site.
Wildlife and plantsThe site has abundant insects during the summer, and is home to a wide range of insects that thrive on chalk grassland. There are bee orchids and other wildflowers to look out for. There were several pyramid orchids (not pictured) when I visited.
