Uphill Nature Reserve


North Somerset
BS23 4TT


Uphill Hill Local Nature Reserve is located to the south of the village of Uphill, which is itself just south of Weston super Mare. This 17 hectare site is owned by North Somerset Council and is popular with the local community. Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Uphill Hill is part of the Mendip Limestone Grasslands Special Area of Conservation, (SAC) supporting a diverse flora and valuable insect habitat.

The site lies on carboniferous limestone, which has been formed into a sheer face by quarrying at the western edge. A very diverse flora is found on the rock ledges of the disused quarry and steeper slopes of the Hill. An outstanding display of cowslips, primroses and green winged orchids covers the northern and eastern hill slopes in the Spring. The rest of the site is more level and gently sloping and consists of semi-improved calcareous grassland.

A tower tops the Hill and can be climbed for a panoramic view. Archaeological features include a disused lime kiln, a sheepwash and a powder house.

A steering group oversees the management of the site, which is carried out in conjunction with English Nature and the Avon Wildlife Trust (the site is also immediately adjacent to Walborough LNR owned by the Avon Wildlife Trust). Two volunteer wardens also monitor the site.
