About the event

Join Dougal on an exploration of this rich grassland site on the south side of Colchester, still owned by the MOD but threatened with development.

This is another opportunity for CNHS members to see the site, that has been in the news, for themselves. It has a rich mix of acid grassland, gorse and broom scrub, some relict heath, thick hedgerows as well as some small wooded areas. It is noted for its invertebrates, which we will be looking out for especially, as well as the birds, admiring the flora and anything else that catches our eyes. 

Meet at the army post on the Mersea Road – TM005229. Park in Queen Elizabeth Way on the opposite side of the road. The location is on a bus route, stout footwear will be adequate and note that no toilets are on site.

Contact Dougal on 07494 866157 to book a place.
