About the reserve

The meadow is a relic of the downland that once covered the area and it is likely that the boundary hedges have been in existence since medieval times. Bird life includes the yellowhammer, who scavenges for seeds. Wild angelica blooms from July to October; its nectar is very attractive to insects
