About the reserve
A large wetland complex spreading from the slopes of Helman Tor, the landscape here has been characterised by tin streaming which creates hummocks and hollows. These determine where the areas of wet and dry heathland and grassland are, together with large areas of wet woodland and open water. Sundews can be found in wet areas amongst sphagnum mosses and produce small white flowers from June to August. There are the remains of a Neolithic hill settlement which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
