Holy Copse

Holy Copse is a National Trust reserve, an area of chalk downland near Streatley with areas of ancient coppiced woodland and light scrub. The slopes are too steep to be ploughed and have only ever been grazed, thereby resulting in a flower rich grassland habitat, particularly suitable for butterflies, of which there are a large number of endangered species present during the year. It is also particularly good for Buzzard, Kestrel and Red Kite. Access is across the B40009 from the small car park at the top of the hill leading down to Streatley.
