Rammamere Heath SSSI

The largest heathland site in Greensand Country, Rammamere Heath is a Site of Special Interest (SSSI) and part of the Kings Wood and Rushmere National Nature Reserve (NNR) and provides a contrast to the shaded beauty of the adjacent Kings Wood.  In late summer the flowering heather is stunning.

Tree pipits are seen on the open heath and in summer adders bask on the sandy soil. The purple flowers of heather herald the end of summer, when autumn hues start to take the place of verdant growth both in the wood and on the heath with bracken stems dying back and trees losing their leaves. The heathland is grazed by cattle to allow the heather to thrive.

Walking access only via public rights of way (including the Greensand Ridge Walk).

Access points: Small car park at SP 9173 2989 (What 3 Words: ///blown.pothole.unicorns) where Greensand Ridge Walk passes through.
