Kempshott Conservation Group manage three sites in and around Down Grange, towards the east of this Basingstoke ward. These sites are run for the benefit of wildlife and nature conservation, but also for the greater enjoyment of nature lovers everywhere.

Our members are all volunteers living near to or using Down Grange park. We also  manage the community orchard in Kendal Gardens.

In case you are not familiar with the area, we invite you to a quick tour under the Sites heading: for what we are doing, when, and why.
