Hill End Chalk Pit

Hill End Chalk Pit is a small, disused chalk pit located 3km to the west of Stevenage.

The B651 road passes the site; on the opposite side of the road is a car park that serves both the chalk pit and the adjacent Hitch Wood.

The area owned by North Herts Council contains the disused pit, a small area of chalk grassland and associated scrub, with mature woodland around the peripheries.

Hill End Chalk Pit is Registered Common Land and a Local Wildlife Site due to its chalk grassland habitat.
