Oldbury Hill is an Iron Age hill fort that commanded a powerful defensive position, with early ramparts t2 miles in length. The woodlands support oak, birch and Scots pine with a variety of fungi and plants, including heather and bilberry. The hills and woods are a Greens and Ridge Special Landscape Area and part of the Metropolitan Green Belt, managed by the Kent County Council. The small caves and shallow rock shelters in the sandstone ridge were probably used by Paleolithic man.
