About the reserve

There is documentary evidence that a rectory had existed to the west of the Reed Pond since the mid-14th century. It is thought the original pond was a stew pond, providing fish for the clergy's table. The grassland features species such as lady's smock, lady's bedstraw and meadow foxtail. A diverse range of butterflies have been recorded, including speckled wood but only a few species of dragon and damselfly have been seen.
