The site remains open as a local recreation spot for neighbouring residents to take their daily exercise. Please do not travel from out of your local area to visit us. Please follow the latest UK Government guidance when planning your visit.

We are currently undertaking a variety of habitat and access improvement works around the site. There will be some disruption to the carparking facilities and access to parts of the site may be restricted whilst work is being carried out. We thank visitors for their understanding and patience during this period, we assure you that the improvements will be worth the temporary inconvenience. 

Hunter's Hill was a former quarry that has since been transformed by the Council to make the most of its beautiful woodlands, shrubs and rock faces by creating footpaths, wheelchair access, seating and picnic areas as well as scenic view points.

Visitors can wander through the serene woodlands, discover the hidden wildlife, take in the extraordinary panoramic views or just go for a picnic.

Hunter's hill is a particularly good site for bees and butterflies in the summer months and for fungi in the autumn/winter months. The Ranger Service manage the habitats accordingly and there are a themed volunteer days and walks throughout the year. For further information please see our events programme.
