Smithcombe, Sharpenhoe and Sundon Hills

The area between Smithcombe and the Sundon Hills forms spectacular countryside and yet is less than 10 kilometres north of Luton. It provides an excellent example of a chalk scarp and dip slope, features which rely on the topographic expression of gently dipping chalk beds over a large area to be seen and appreciated. Fine views are afforded over the clay vale to the north and there is a strong link between rock type, scenery, soil type and vegetation.
