This open countryside site was created in 2020 on two former agricultural fields. Mature tree belts and hedgerows along the site boundary were enhanced with the creation of areas of species-rich woodland and grassland to provide exciting new wildlife habitats. The site creation works also included a new car park, pathways, information boards and benches for visitors. Access is currently via Public Rights of Way only. Open access will be available in summer 2021.

This Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) was established in 2019. The purpose of this SANG is to avoid increased recreational pressure on the Wealdon Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA) from new residential development by providing an alternative recreation area that offers a similar experience to the SPA.
The land was formerly two agricultural fields, one arable and the other pasture. Following establishment of the SANG the site will be managed in accordance with a SANG management plan, for the benefit of people and wildlife.
Management by the Land Trust will seek to enhance the biodiversity and recreational value of the new site for visitors.
We are always on the look out for enthusiastic, committed people who want to make a real and lasting difference in their local community.Get Involved
