About the reserve
This reserve is an urban reserve with a mixture of habitats, including grassland, scrub and a pond. Foxes may be seen here, readily identified by their reddish fur with black patches on the ears and tail tip. Common centaury is a small plant with pinkish-lilac flowers and blooms from June to October. In the 1850s, the site was used as a railway cutting and previously the area was part of a post-medieval field system
