The East Cliff & Warren Country Park is protected as a Site of Special Scientific  Interest (SSSI) and this Country Park and Local Nature Reserve is formed from a series of landslips over the last 200 years. The last in 1916, have stabilised the coast and was once a chalk grassland, and it was gifted to the people of Folkestone in 1924. Grazing animals were banned and so shrubs and trees were free to spread, encouraging flora and wildlife to grow.
Rare butterflies, insects and wildflowers are allowed to grow freely, and you can see the number one and three Martello Tower (please see our separate listings for more details), built as defences against the potential invasion from Napoleon.
There are several walks through the Warren, managed by The White Cliffs Countryside Project (WCCP), which showcase its beauty and distinct character.
