Fontmell and Melbury Downs
This site is designated as an SSSI or is part of a larger SSSI. Here are the details:
|SSSI Name||Fontmell and Melbury Downs|
This large site, comprising part of the edge of the chalk escarpment holds unimproved chalk grassland and scrub communities which are typical of north east Dorset and have high botanical and entomological interest.
|Status||Now Featured on NoD|
|My Notes||Whilst this SSSI extends well beyond the bounds of the Dorset Wildlife Trust reserve at Fontmell Down the reserve itself is, undoubtedly, a major feature of it.|
