About the reserve

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.
