About the reserve
This reserve has a rich diversity of wildflowers and a thriving stream runs through it. A good example of wildflowers found here includes the germander speedwell, a pretty little flower that blooms from April until mid-summer. Brown trout are resident in the stream, indicators of clean and well oxygenated waters. This area was first used as agricultural land in the post-medieval period and it is likely that the path that runs through the reserve dates from this time, perhaps as a churchway linking farmsteasd to the parish church.
