About the reserve

This site is geologically diverse, contributing to the development of a diverse range of habitats and species. Oak-birch bracken and ash-wych elm woodland types are both present. The varied plant life also includes species which indicate the woodland's ancient origins such as early-purple orchid, wood anemone and yellow archangel.  The long history of human intervention has lead to the development of several ponds in the old clay pits and hummocky terrain. The wetland is a valuable habitat and is botanically rich
