About the reserve
This site is located on a strip of magnesian limestone, which was quarried from as early as the 17th century until the 1920s. Since then, the site has become partially flooded to form a shallow lake with well vegetated margins and several small islands. The lake is rich in animal life and hosts various dragonflies and damselflies, frogs, toads and great crested newts.
