About Brush Hill
Close to Monks Risborough in Buckinghamshire, Brush Hill Local Nature Reserve lies on the Chiltern escarpment right next to the historically important site of Whiteleaf Hill.
With its chalk cross and neolithic barrow, Whiteleaf Hill joins Brush Hill LNR and a number of other important sites close by to demonstrate the rich and varied habitats and history that can be found in the area.
This 30 acre (12 hectare) Reserve was opened in 1997 with funding from LEO Pharmaceuticals and Orange Communications, and with the support of English Nature and Butterfly Conservation.
Reserved for everybody
Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) are designed to be of importance for wildlife, geology, education and public enjoyment. To find out more about them, visit the LNR pages in Natural England's website.
Brush Hill Local Nature Reserve was managed for the local community by Wycombe District Council Woodland Service and the Risborough Countryside Group until 2013 when management was handed over to the Chiltern Society.
The Chiltern Society now carries out conservation work and organises other events linked to the reserve. New volunteers are always very welcome.
