Mottistone Down

Mottistone Down

Mottistone Down consists of 80 acres of chalk downland, broadleaf woodland and lowland heath. It is being conserved to encourage biodiversity and is a key habitat for the Dartford Warbler, Early Gentian and other scarce heatland species. It is not a farm as such, but is grazed by a small herd of Highland cattle. Educational visits are on a do-it-yourself basis but information packs are available from John Paton on 01983 760773. Please book first. The site is a mosaic of habitats in a small area and there is evidence of Early Bronze Age society.
