About the reserve

Stand amidst the Heather at the summit and look out over the steep sided valley and the amazing view at Heather Hills Nature Reserve, part of the wider Danbury Ridge Nature Reserves. 

Wander down to the valley floor past the stream running through the valley center, where a whole range of Ferns and wetland plants flourish along the waters edge.

Elms, mature Beech and European Larch trees spread over the reserve along with beautiful carpets of green Moschatel, growing alongside White Climbing Fumitory and the tiny white flowers of Heath Bedstraw.
