Dungerness pebble trail




A new trail has been launched at Dungerness by the RSPB.

Called ‘The pebble trail’ it explains the history of the area using display boards, activities and a new path through the area.

The trail tells the story of the reserve and its pebbles over the last 2000 years

The trail, has been developed through funding from Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust (ICET) and the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund.

Heather Chantler, RSPB Lifelong Learning Officer, said: “The Pebble Trail is an exciting addition to the visitor experience here at RSPB Dungeness. The trail tells the story of the reserve and its pebbles over the last 2000 years, from Anglo-Saxon hunters to modern day gravel extraction.

Children from the Dungeness Wildlife Explorers Group and the families of the funders were the first to try out the trail.

The shingle ridges at Dungeness support an internationally important community of plants and animals. These include the regionally scarce great fen sedge, as well as great crested newts and medicinal leeches, butterflies and bees.
