Lardon chase, Berkshire

Lardon chase is one of three adjacent properties owned by the National Trust , the other two being the Holies and Lough Down. Together the three properties cover 67 acres of downland and woodland in the English county of Berkshire on the edge of the Berkshire Downs near the village of Streatley . The area has a long history of occupation, with evidence of several ancient settlements as well as Neolithic and Iron Age forts. In recent years the area was used for motorcycle scrambling and the production of turf leading to wide scale destruction of the natural flora and fauna. Now it is gradually being returned to its natural state with the nurturing of chalk-loving species.
