Outdoor Spaces

The key landscape characteristics are winding valleys and streams which converge in the Combe Haven basin. There are numerous ancient woodlands, ghylls and small irregular shaped fields. One of the distinctive features which results from the topography and layout of development is the strong visual connectivity between the village and the landscape – offering uncluttered long and shorter distance views from the built up area. Farmland also surrounds much of the village.

The Neighbourhood Plan designated 4 Local Green Spaces:

Sites of Special Scientific Interest:

  • Forewood SSSI
  • Combe Haven SSSI
  • Marline Wood SSSI
