Situated in the Radnage valley, Yoesden is a quintessential site of the traditional Chiltern landscape. A swathe of untouched chalk grassland is packed with rare butterflies and wild flowers and is topped by a ‘hanger’ woodland of beech, yew and whitebeam trees on the edge of a steeply sided valley. The woodland is home to great spotted woodpeckers, buzzards, red kites and various woodland specialist plants, while the grassland displays a glorious variety of colours throughout spring and summer with the seasonal blooming of orchids, bird's-foot trefoil, vetch, knapweed and Chiltern gentians.
Parking spaces can be found in Bledlow Ridge on Chinnor Road, close to The Boot pub. Alternatively, Yoesden Nature Reserve is a 1.5 mile walk (approximately) from the Ridgeway National Trail.
