Sainfoin at Hexton Chalk Pit © Steve Chilton

Best visited in June and July.

Once an active chalk quarry, this small reserve near Hitchin is now full of chalk grassland herbs and grasses. It is a peaceful spot with fine views across the border into Bedfordshire. Steve Chilton visited on 23 June 2009 and photographed this lovely bank of Sanfoin.
