Dramatic and stunning chalk escarpment with panoramic views
We're not running the usual Easter egg hunts or activities here this year, but we do expect to be very busy and the car parks are usually at capacity by mid-morning. We’re pleased to be able to welcome people to enjoy our outdoor places, but too many visitors can have a huge impact on local communities as well as the emergency services. Thank you for staying local this Easter. Please remember that BBQs are not permitted. Always check the website before you travel.
From a rich habitat for birds, refuge for reptiles and a fantastic place to spot butterflies both rare and commonplace, Denbies Hillside is full of wildlife just waiting to be discovered.
Take the time to stop and spot some of our stunning wildlife. From kestrels to tiny meadow ants, our site of Site of Special Scientific Interest is rich with wildlife.
The hills that you can see over Denbies Hillside are created by tiny yellow meadow ants and shouldn't be disturbed. The ants open up the soil and keep it porous, fertilize the grass roots with their droppings whilst unintentionally helping to protect our chalkhill blue butterfly caterpillars.
