Opening up the views at Peak Hill
Peak Hill was acquired by the National Trust in 1986 due to the outstanding generosity of Miss Anne Farewell Jones, and as a result of a joint appeal by Sid Vale Association and the Trust.
Based on the South West Coast Path it has long been a popular destination for visitors of the Jurassic Coast, with stunning views, particularly from the high peak along the coastline.
Creating glades and new views
At Peak Hill we have opened up new vistas along the coast path to encourage new habitats. This will benefit wildlife including butterflies, wildflowers alongside increasing the biodiversity of the area.
Wooded areas have been coppiced to increase the number of viewing areas and improve glades along the coastal path. The Sid Vale Association generously provided funding for contractors to carry out work further inland designed to help link these glades together.
If you would like to become a volunteer for the National Trust in East Devon, we are recruiting for a number of different opportunities including countryside rangers, beach rangers, a guide around one of properties including Shute Barton and Branscombe Mill, or even a newsletter editor.
