The butterflies of Langley Vale Wood

The largest of our four First World War Centenary Woods, Langley Vale Wood has pockets of ancient woodland, diverse and fascinating wildlife and flora, and stunning views over the rolling hills of the North Downs. In the coming years, our ambitious woodland creation scheme will transform the existing arable land into both a natural haven and a living memorial to those who sacrificed so much in the First World War.

 

With this wonderful site comes a dedicated band of volunteers who put life and soul into supporting its development. From woodland working groups to guided walks, orchard management and gardening, there are also wildlife monitors who identify and record plants, birds and butterflies, who frequent this special area in the South East. One such wildlife monitor, Keith Lelliot, has kindly shared an overview of the butterflies spotted at Langley Vale in 2021. It makes for interesting and inspiring reading – please click below!
