A coastal site on the Isle of Wight, noted by the Society for its important insects. Now managed by the National Trust, it is part of a large Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Special Area for Conservation (SAC; a European designation). The soft, chalk undercliffs support a variety of plants and flowers, such as creeping bent, sea campion, wild cabbage and thrift, and fulmars, peregrines and ravens nest here. The windswept St Catherine's Down rises behind these rocky, wave-battered cliffs.
