Abbey Barn South
Abbey Barn South is a flat site above the valley which contains arable fields and woodland, including the woodland ride which has historical associations with Daws Hill House. The site is adjacent to the M40 motorway to the south, Deangarden Wood and the former dry ski slope to the north, and the former RAF Daws Hill base to the west.
