This site is designated as an SSSI or is part of a larger SSSI. Here are the details:

SSSI Name Drakenorth
Primary Photo

Drakenorth supports rich grassland communities on predominantly south-facing slopes. Fullers Earth Clay underlies most of the site but in the extreme north there is Upper Greensand and Gault Clay and the character of the soils of the upper slopes is somewhat complicated by landslips. The lower lying areas hold seepages, mostly of base-rich character and there are several streams in deeply incised wooded ravines.
