About the reserve

Unimproved herb-rich pasture that is a very rare sight in the Cornish countryside and thus is one of the most important meadows for nature conservation in Cornawall. The lesser butterfly orchid and the heath spoted orchid both make an appearance here. This area survived the plough during the Second World War as a military camp was sited here
