South Blean is part of the wider Blean living landscape stretching through a 16km arc to the west and north of Canterbury. The reserve, which has been established by a series of acquisitions between 1966 and 2006, covers some 329 hectares of mixed native deciduous woodland, conifer and sweet chestnut plantations, as well as bog and heath.
Great for: ancient trees, birdwatching, butterflies, fungi, spring flowers and wildflowers.
Walking: There are some steep slopes and very wet and muddy paths in winter.
