About this walk

Maidscross Hill is a heathland area with old chalk and gravel workings. It is a Local Nature Reserve and SSSI designated for its wildlife value, particularly plant life. The patches of chalky and sandy topsoil are habitat for an interesting range of Breckland species, some rare. The site gives views over RAF Lakenheath airfield and the western Brecks landscape. This is a great location for yor dog to run free, playing with others in a natural, safe environment.
