Nettlebed Common

A Site of Special Scientific Interest
Natural England designated this small area (1 hectare) of Nettlebed Common as a
Site of Special Scientific Interest because its geology is very important in
understanding the history of the River Thames. There are deposits here that may
date back to the earliest Pleistocene Ice Ages.
