A chalk hill in the Chilterns and noted by Rothschild for its 'rare plants and insects' particularly the silver-spotted skipper butterfly, the pasqueflower and field fleawort. Over the years the site’s interest was deteriorating through neglect and lack of management. Now managed by the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust, recovery is in progress. Following chalk grassland restoration work, the small blue butterfly has recently returned to the reserve.
