About the reserve

The site is mainly grassland with some broadleaved woodland, scrub and streams. Meadow thistle and whorled caraway are two key species associated with the purple moor-grass and rushes that dominate this place. The meadow thistle is an elegant plant growing to almost three feet in height and with only the softest of prickles. A low mound on the stream's slopes may be the remains of a Bronze Age barrow. There are many barrows around this area.
