About the event

Join David Seilly and Anita Joysey (Cambridge Local Group Committee) for a guided walk around East Pit. East Pit was quarried up until the early 1980s and is the largest of the three chalk pits at Cherry Hinton. Up until recently the site was largely covered with Buddleia, but this has been cleared through the work of the Wildlife Trust, helping chalk grassland plants to re-establish. Come along for the evening to see some of the beautiful chalk grassland flowers that can be found at this reserve.
