About the reserve
Part of the Little Orme SSSI, the eastern part of the reserve is dominated by limestone grassland with some exposed limestone cliffs. The western part of the reserve mainly contains blackthorn scrub and unimproved grassland. The Little Orme forms part of a limestone outcrop that extends from Anglesey along the North Wales coast and south to Llangollen. The limestone was formed over 320 million years ago in a shallow tropical sea and contains the fossilised remains of corals and other sea animals. Look out for breeding fulmar on the cliffs, and colourful rock-rose and orchids in late spring.
