This local biodiversity, celebrated by the Benson Nature Group, plays a pivotal role in our environment, supporting a myriad of species that contribute to the ecological balance and the sheer beauty of our surroundings.

Benson's history, deeply rooted from the medieval era to its significance in the English Civil War, sets a picturesque backdrop against which a diverse range of flora and fauna thrive.


The village's natural habitats, from the River Thames to Ewelme Brook, create nurturing environments for various species. These include an array of plants, birds, butterflies, and insects such as bees, all playing crucial roles within our ecosystem.

Bird enthusiasts might delight in the knowledge that the area hosts a variety of avian species, contributing to the charm and biodiversity of our locale.


Similarly, the butterfly populations, with their vivid patterns, add a splash of color to our gardens and public spaces. Insects, especially bees, are indispensable pollinators, supporting the growth of many plants and crops, thus ensuring the sustainability of our local agriculture and gardens.


The commitment to preserving and enhancing this natural heritage is shared by the Benson community, as evidenced by the efforts of the Benson Nature Group. Their work in monitoring, protecting, and educating about local wildlife and habitats is crucial. It reminds us of the importance of our roles as stewards of the environment.
