From the swooping skylarks to the wild flowers there is so much nature to behold and a new picture painted by every season.

Chalk grassland restoration project

We have recently finished a project to restore 239 hectares of herb-rich chalk grassland on former arable land.

This ensures the protection of any archaeology and significantly improves biodiversity.
