walborough-nature-reserveThis reserve situated just south of Uphill village has salt marsh and limestone grassland with rare plants and insects.

Purchased by Avon Wildlife trust in 1996 with help from the heritage lottery fund and others including many local people this 49-acre wildlife reserve is made up of limestone grassland, salt marsh and muddy bank of the Axe Estuary Uphill Pill.

Known to many locals as Young’s hill it is similar to Uphill hill and has the same plants. The salt marsh is very varied with many specialised plants acclimatised to growing with the tides flooding over them at times. Many rare species are to be found here.
