A Site of Special Scientific Interest, Stubbs Wood is home to many rare animals and plants.
From the Gravesend ridge there are many superb views over the Weald and Bough Beach reservoir.
In the areas of ancient woodland you can find English oak and beech tress which dominate the woodland; although holly, whitebeam, ash, chestnut, hazel and rowan are also present.
You can also find bluebells, wood sorrel, yellow archangels and ramsons.
Unusually for Kent, there are some areas of heathland with heather, bilberry, bracken, heath bedstraw, wavy hair grass and heath speedwell.
