Blow’s Downs

Blow's Downs Nature Reserve is a remnant of the chalk grassland which once covered the slopes of the Chilterns. Yellow Rattle, Squinancywort, Wild Thyme and the rare Great Pignut grow among the grasses here, and this is also one of the best places in Britain to see Ring Ouzel and other birds as they migrate north in the spring. Much of the Northern hillside is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), which was purchased by the Wildlife Trust in 1995. The remainder of Blow's Downs was purchased for the Wildlife Trust by Dunstable Town Council with the aid of a lottery grant in 1997. Cottage Bottom Fields Nature Reserve is owned by Bedfordshire County Council. There is public access to all areas
