About the reserve
A small reserve of mixed broad-leaved woodland in a steep-sided valley with a fast-flowing stream, there is a rich variety of habitats here including a marshy area, a small quarry and a disused mine shaft. Plants such as holly occur here, whose berries sustain a range of thrushes through the autumn and winter. Bird species include the treecreeper. There is also a pattern of small enclosures on the reserve that indicate post-medieval activity
