About the reserve

This reserve is a fragment of the wet meadows that were once common in the Trent Valley. It owes its importance as a herb-rich meadow to the high water table and poor drainage and to fertilisers and herbicides not being used on the site. Wide ranges of plants include marsh arrow grass, ragged robin and pignut.
