About the reserve

This peaceful, pretty reserve is an ancient hay meadow with lovely views across countryside  

What's it like to visit? 

You might notice the ancient ridge and furrow pattern to this meadow which suggests farming long ago. A stream forms the bottom boundary and it's great for wildflowers.   

What might you spot? 

If you want to tick off species in your wildflower spotter's handbook this is a great place to come! There's an abundance of cowslips, dropwort, common spotted orchid and goldilocks buttercup. You might also find meadow vetchling, yellow rattle, common birdsfoot trefoil, lady's bedstraw and great burnet.    An impressive twenty-two species of butterfly can be found here, with orange-tip, common blue and small copper all fluttering through the meadow.
