Notes: An article entitled 'Yew Communities of the South Downs' by A.S Wyatt appeared in the Journal of Ecologie in 1926. Butser Hill has been described as 500 acres of chalk grassland - a fairly level summit with spurs running out in every direction. Oxenbourne Down is one of several named areas of downland to the SW of Butser Hill, consisting of mixed yew woodland, chalk scrub and chalk grassland. Both are part of the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, where there is a car park, toilet facilities and a cafe.
