Catherington Down Nature Reserve comprises 32 acres of chalk grassland with narrow areas of fringing woodland. The shallow soil of much of the site supports a rich chalk grassland flora, including several increasingly rare species. Catherington Down is also of interest for the mediaeval strip lynchets which form unusually high terraces on the steepest slopes of the grassland.


The Down is a local Nature Reserve. It is also a Heritage Site for its archaeological interest.


Four public footpaths across the reserve.
