Nature Reserve

The North Downs is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is a nationally important, protected landscape offering beauty, tranquillity, fascinating history, vibrant communities, local produce and many opportunities to explore and enjoy.

The North Downs stretch from Farnham in Surrey across Kent and finish on top of the White Cliffs of Dover. The long distance footpath, the North Downs Way, covers the length of this AONB.  Please see the North Downs Way National Trail for more detail of the route and additional routes from stations and points of interest.

The AONB website covers a great deal of information in relation to the protection of the wildlife and flora, access points and a host of information about its history and heritage including standing stones, flint churches, rich river valleys, information about local produce, volunteering and ways to access this special landscape.
