This open countryside site is currently being created on two former agricultural fields. Mature tree belts and hedgerows along the site boundary are being enhanced with the creation of areas of species-rich woodland, grassland and waterbodies to provide exciting new wildlife habitats. The site creation works will also include 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 early in 2020.

This Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) was established in 2019. The purpose of this and other SANGs is to avoid increased recreational pressure on the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA) from new residential development by providing alternative recreation areas that offer 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.
Management by the Land Trust will seek to enhance the biodiversity and recreational value of the new site for visitors.
