The Lost World of Ausewell

The sheer scale of Ausewell is incredible – it’s like a lost world, beautiful although raw and uncompromising: 342 acres of a wild, rugged mix of wood and heath with dramatic rocky outcrops, boulders and screes, dense woodland and damp temperate rainforest along the famous River Dart.

It’s also a real haven for some of the UK’s most precious and endangered wildlife. Here raptors perch on rocks, at least a dozen of the UK’s species of bats, including the rare barbastelle, roost in forgotten mine shafts, and in the quieter fringes, the hazel dormouse snoozes peacefully in the trees.
