Ringstead Downs

One of the largest remaining areas of chalk grassland in the county, this attractive, steep-sided valley supports a diverse range of plant and animal species.

Many interesting plants can be found, as well as around twenty species of butterfly. Several nationally declining birds – yellowhammer, whitethroat and linnet – occur in good numbers.

Common Rock-rose

This creeping perennial is a typical chalk grassland species. It is in bloom from June to September and has strongly scented lemon-yellow flowers.
