Ancaster Valley: This narrow, steep-sided valley is covered with limestone grassland, scrub and woodland. There is an attractive woodland, consisting chiefly of beech, on the eastern slope of the valley, which has yew, box, wayfaring tree, barberry and wild clematis on its edge, and woodland plants, such as violet and early-purple orchid. Large numbers of butterflies and bumble-bees may be seen on calm sunny days. The wide variety of birds include green and great spotted woodpeckers.
