An example of unimproved limestone grassland with a rich flora and fauna with abundant autumn gentian and one of the few Cotswold sites still supporting Duke of Burgundy butterfly.

A walk to the mobile phone mast at the highest point of the reserve is rewarded with a panoramic view back across the Cotswold hinterland.
