In a quiet wooded valley in an unspoilt area of the chalk North Downs, Juniper Hall, leased from the National Trust, is a superb country house dating from the 17th century. It is about 1km from Box Hill and only 40km from central London.
Set in an area of outstanding geological, geographical and biological interest, the Centre offers a wide range of high quality habitats including unimproved chalk grassland, coppiced woodlands, heathland and high quality freshwater sites nearby. For geographers there is plenty of scope for investigations into human impact on the natural environment, downstream changes in rivers as well as coastal processes. Our location close to the nation's capital means that there are plenty of issues related to the rural-urban fringe to be investigated.
