Sovell Down: Evidence of ancient ditches & chalk extraction at this 1.6 acre site. A Roman road, the Ackling Dyke, connecting Exeter with London, crosses the site. The chalk downland, an oasis in an area of improved grassland & arable fields, is grazed to control scrub invasion, encouraging many typical grass meadow wildflowers.
