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 26 species were recorded including Wall, Clouded Yellow, Adonis Blue and there were good numbers of Small Blue.

Meet at 2.00 pm at the truncated end of the Broadmayne road where it meets the relief road, map reference SY 673 859. N.B. Access is only possible from the eastern side of the relief road.

It would help us if you could book with the walk/talk/work party leader in advance. This does not commit you to turning up, but it means that if we have to cancel the event, we can contact you to tell you this. We may use your email address to contact you immediately after the event, but it will not be held for any future purpose
