During the construction of the road an imaginative plan was devised to create new herb-rich downland on the slopes alongside it. Informal monitoring of butterflies started in 2012 and a formal transect was set up in 2018. Last year 25 species were seen and the overall total for the site has now reached 30 with an appearance of a Chalkhill Blue in 2019 for the first time. An impressive colony of Small Blues has developed.

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.
