One of the richest chalk grassland sites in the country.

Throughout the autumn and winter we’ll be looking to clear patches of scrub to create wildlife corridors, habitat mosaics and species-rich grassland which will benefit species such as the Adonis Blue butterfly, the straw belle moth and the late spider orchid.

LEADER: Alfie Gay, White Cliffs Countryside Partnership (07734 777380).

MEET: By the bollards at the top of Castle Hill road, junction of Crete Road West, Folkestone, CT18 7AB.
