About

Managed by Kent Wildlife Trust, the reserve is in two parts totalling 104 hectares. The south-eastern section is dominated by woodland and scrub, with two areas totalling approximately 5 hectares, which are managed by grazing using the Trust's own herd of Exmoor ponies.

The northern section is also predominantly woodland with some recently cleared areas, now under grazing management. Access to this section is by arrangement only.

The down provides wonderful views over the Weald of Kent.
