On Saturday 23rd June, 11.00 am, enjoy a wild flower walk around Ranscombe Farm Reserve, led by Richard Moyse, the Ranscombe Project Manager. This reserve, situated on the North Downs, is managed by Plantlife and is a site of special scientific interest. It is a 560 acre reserve with 10km of footpaths across ancient farmland, chalk grassland and coppice woods with stunning views across the Medway Gap and Luddesdown valley. The woodlands are now being managed for conservation and have good populations of dormice, birds, large mammals, butterflies and insects. However the site is renowned for its collection of rare wild plants, especially arable wildflowers and orchids.
There is a small car park off Sundridge Hill, Cuxton, just off junction 2 of the M2. Grid Reference TQ57 1800. For your sat nav use the postcode ME2 1LA but stop once you reach the car park.
