With views towards Leith Hill, the highest point in south east England, Denbies Hillside is a great spot for wildlife-watching. Named after John Denby, a 17th-century farmer, the hillside is home to a great variety of plants and animals, including adonis blue and chalkhill blue butterflies. The chalk downland at White Down offers yet more spectacular views. It also hides several Second World War pill boxes, built to defend against a Nazi invasion. To the west of Denbies Hillside is Hackhurst Downs, where you can savour the vista looking towards the Tillingbourne Valley.
