Ideas in chalk

Tomorrow I have a meeting with Oliver Cripps (North Wessex Downs AONB) about a slightly mad notion for chalk features placed in series across the landscape. Maybe 21st-Century floral fortresses? Flint-walled lookout posts?

My vision is for something semi-sculptural, with multiple benefits: biodiversity, tourism, community involvement.  This was inspired by the Small Blue success at Sheepdrove. If we come up with a neat concept, we’ll be keen to consult with conservation bodies, rangers, access officers, etc – for project partnerships.
