What's special about Lockeridge Dene and Piggledene?

The National Trust looks after Lockeridge Dene and Piggledene because of their unique sarsen boulder streams which are a rich and diverse natural habitat for insects, birds, flower and lichens. These two special places are remnants of a much larger sarsen stream landscape but they still have a wonderful other-worldly feel about them.
