About the reserve

This reserve was created in order to preserve the diverse flora and fauna communities that had developed on the former Wilford Power Station following its decomission in the 1960s. The man-made nature of the site has resulted in an unusually high diversity of habitats within a compact area. A number of county-rare species are found here, including the southern marsh orchid, which together with the common spotted orchid and their hybrids make the site of high scientific value.
