About the reserve
This reserve is a large area of open moorland lying at the northern end of Bodmin Moor. A Bronze Age cairn sits at the reserve's highest point and standing stones form part of the area's prehistoric landscape. The grasshopper warbler is a local summer visitor, amongst others. Botanical species include bogbean, which is present in the still shallow margins of wet hollows
