Woolland Hill

This important site contains one of Dorset's largest fragments of chalk heath.

This rare habitat enables acid loving plants such as heather and Tormentil to grow in an otherwise alkaline area. Its designation as a Site of Nature Conservation Interest highlights the area's value. The site also offers superb views across seven counties. The Wessex Ridgeway, that runs along the road in front of the site entrance, provides access to the wider countryside.
