About the reserve
This nature reserve, on The Lizard, is made up from unique heathlands famed for their unusual geology, mostly Serpentinite rock, and exceptional plant life. This reserve is prime Cornish heath with pools and wet willow woodland. Early Bronze Age barrows are present and there are several ancient 'turf-hut' circles. There are remains of buildings likely to have been used during the Second World War.
