A good mix of habitat, including Ancient woodland at Corton Woods, the disused railtrack, which is a mix of hawthorne, oak, apple, sycamore, elderberry and ash trees. Alongside is the open pitch and putt course and Dip Farm football pitches, over the coastroad there is the heath and warren, dominated by Bracken but areas of both Bell and Ling Heather still remain. The cliffs give a good vantage point for any seawatching
