It was fascinating to discover some of the history and origins of Beeston Common from one who is surely its greatest advocate and supporter. The Common lies in a glacial valley, but within that area there are two small hills, of different geological ages. You can see how different they are from the vegetation – Bracken Hill has no heather growing on it, whereas Pillbox Hill does. Between these hills are the valleys that hold the marshes and grasslands that form the many different habitats in this special site.
