A former gravel extraction site that has been landfilled and landscaped. Its main feature is the hill that gives it its name and which hosts a mountain bike course.

The plateau at the top is rich in flowering plants and provides good views across the large reedbeds of the Ingrebourne Marshes SSSI. Bitterns occasionally winter there and marsh harriers are often seen flying across looking for prey
