Beacon Wood Country Park The extraction of clay during the region’s industrial past has left beds of sandstone, sandy clays and fossils in Beacon Wood Country Park, between Dartford and Gravesend. Now a Site of Nature Conservation Interest, the park’s outer reaches are home to native trees like oak, ash and sweet chestnut under which bluebells, dog’s mercury, wood anemone and stinking iris grow. Seasonal ponds in the lower part of the old pit create perfect breeding grounds for colourful dragonflies as well as newts and frogs.
