Collyweston Quarries: An old quarry site transformed into a beautiful area of limestone grassland.

The wildflowers and undulating terrain provide food and warm, sheltered conditions for many different insects and reptiles. Glow-worms can be seen in the longer grass at dusk or night time in June, when the females glow green to attract mates. Reptiles such as common lizard bask in the sun on the bare ground.

The areas of scrub support several bird species, and the ringing laugh of the green woodpecker can be heard in summer.
