A collection of photographs documenting some of the moths that have been found on Hawridge and Cholesbury Commons, 42 hectares of common land nestled in the Chiltern Hills.
Hawridge and Cholesbury commons covers 42 hectares of privately owned common land and is designated as a Local Wildlife Site.
The owner and Hawridge and Cholesbury Preservation Society manage the commons for the benefit of the local community and visitors whilst maintaining a healthy habitat for the local flora, fauna and wild life. Areas of acidic soil support heather communities and the Preservation Society is working on increasing the heather coverage. There are two ponds and the commons are notable for fungi and apple trees.
The commons are enjoyed by walkers and horse riders alike. Whilst the local cricket club and pitch situated at the north west end provides a focal point on many a summers day.
