About the reserve
Walking right from the entrance you will enjoy glimpses into the enormous Chedworth Woods with huge beech, oak and hazel trees. At intervals along the track cuttings expose the different layers and features of geology such as the fossil-filled oolitic limestone that makes up much of the Cotswolds. It is also home to some of the most accessible and best exposures of cuttings from Middle Jurassic period sequences in Great Britain.
