Challenge

Polhill bank is a beautiful piece of chalk grassland with stunning views of the Sevenoaks area. It is a wonderful place to explore and a haven for a range of wildlife. Kent Wildlife Trust has managed the site at its own cost in recent years to keep it in the condition you now find it in, but this fragile arrangement has given the site no long-term security.

Solution

The ten-acre nature reserve has become available to purchase, along with a huge extension which will protect 40 acres overall, for wildlife, for the future. This exciting opportunity, if successful, will bring: Long-term security of the current reserve (ten acres) and 11 acres of arable land to be returned to wild New access points to the site, allowing easier and more efficient management Restore four acres of chalk grassland/scrubland Protect and extend the space available for iconic species s
