Managed by Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, St. Catherine Hill is a 58 hectare flower-rich chalk grassland nature reserve that offers some of the best views of nature in all its beauty. While walking down its trails, you will be able to see stunning wild flowers, and over 25 different species of butterflies including the marbled white, chalkhill blue and brown argus. For people who are interested in history, there is a lot on the platter. There are ramparts of the Iron Age hill fort cut into the 70m high hill, buried ruins of the Norman chapel that gives the site its name and several rectangular burial mounds along Plague Pit Valley which mark the location of mass graves. While standing on its summit, you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views over Winchester, the Itchen Valley and the surrounding countryside.
