During the construction of the relief road, an imaginative plan was devised to create new herb-rich downland on the slopes alongside it. This event gives us the opportunity to monitor the development of this important new habitat where 21 species of butterfly have already been recorded.
Meet at 1.00 pm at the truncated end of the Broadmayne road where it meets the relief road, map reference SY 674 859. N.B. Access is only possible from the eastern side of the relief road.
