Cadbury Hill, an Iron Age hillfort, designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The plateau comprises unimproved calcicole grassland on Carboniferous limestone, which is home to various species of butterflies and invertebrates. Bats and owls may be seen foraging across the site at dusk. Six hectares of woodland surround the hillfort, dominated by ash and field maple, with some elements of ancient woodland and verteran oak pollards on the upper slopes. The site also includes mesotrophic grassland on the lower slopes, including an orchid slope. There is also an extensive re-seeded grassland covering the clay capping to Henley Quarry landfill site.
