Hothfield Heathlands

Rich in flora and fauna, this important reserve contains Kent's last four valley bogs and one of its few remaining fragments of open heath.
Not only does this reserve contain the last four valley bogs in Kent, this reserve also allows observation of one of the last ancient heathlands in England. It is noted for dragonflies such as the keeled skimmer and it is a good site for viviparous lizard and grass snake. Plant life includes heather, crosse-leaved heath, dwarf and common gorse.
