plateau on the north-eastern fringes of the Mendip Hills,
overlooking Chew Valley Lake.
to look out for
The flower-rich grassland on Burledge Hill includes
cowslip, lady's mantle, saw-wort and devil's bit scabious.
Butterflies are abundant in summer and birds such as
willow warbler, garden warbler and whitethroat can
be heard singing from the scrub areas.
Three fields at Burledge Hill are designated as a
Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI).
The site also falls within the Mendip Hills Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and has panoramic
views over the Chew Valley.
There is a public footpath which crosses the reserve.
