Cooper's Hill is one of the few remaining examples of the heaths which once stretched along the Greensand Ridge. The attractive area, brightly colourful when the heather and gorse bloom, provides a home for a number of rare plants and invertebrates. This place to unwind is stile-free. (Natural Interest)
