Dolebury Warren is a site of an Iron Age Hill fort, but is now filled with wildflowers and rare butterflies. The flowers vary from early purple orchid to bell heather and the unusual mixture of wildflowers makes this an important site for all wildlife.
You can see the remains of the double ramparts of the Iron Age Hill fort which represent Dolebury’s past. Dolebury is perfect if you want to get away from the busy city life, love stunning views and flowers, like historical sites or want to enjoy time with beautiful butterflies. The best time to see the flowers and butterflies is from May till August, whereas the stunning views can be seen all year round.
The access to the site include very steep paths with steps and the gravel paths can become muddy. Dolebury Warren is not suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs. Dogs are allowed, but have to be on lead. There is a small car park available just off Doleberrow, near the entrance of the reserve. Travelling to the site by car will take about 30 minutes from the city centre. Public transport will bring you to the bus stop in an hour, from there it is a 15 minute walk to the entrance. Entry to this nature reserve is free of charge!
