Langdon Cliffs

Langdon Cliffs (c) National Trust

This project has reverted around 12 hectares of arable farmland to chalk downland in one of the most iconic landscapes in the country.  This National Trust owned land has been fenced and is now grazed by livestock to help grasses and herbs develop.  This land would traditionally have been grazed before it was ploughed for arable crops and it is hoped that this initiative will allow species such as the small blue butterfly, chalk carpet moth, corn bunting and skylark to colonise.
