The 'piece of old Breck country' was given a priority rating by the Society and listed as a site for rare birds (such as nightjars and plovers), insects and plants. Although the main site of interest has now been destroyed by landfill and development, the adjacent Red Lodge Heath is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). This mosaic of dry acid grassland, chalk grassland, lichen heath and wet woodland is home to many rare bees and wasps including the cuckoo-wasp and five-banded tailed digger wasp. Privately owned and managed in partnership with Natural England.
