High Meadow is a rolling downland stretching right into the town of Dover. It is home to colourful flowers, and butterflies. Volunteer conservation tasks this winter will mostly include clearing scrub and bramble, maintaining footpaths, steps, gates and fences. You can take home any logs you cut whilst working to improve the chalk downland.
