Rocks at Dryhill Nature Reserve

Dryhill Local Nature Reserve

Its diverse rocks and fossils meant that Dryhill was the first geological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Kent – as well as being a Local Nature Reserve and Geological Conservation Review site.

Originally a ragstone quarry, the site has been reclaimed by nature since the 1950s. With woodland, high rocky outcrops and the chance of stumbling across a geological treasure, it’s a great spot for families and amateur geologists to explore. Pack a picnic and set up base in the woodlands.
