Allimore Green: 6.7 acres of unimproved damp grassland.

Although a relatively small site the chequered history of management has created a wonderful mosaic of vegetation.

The grassland is best known for its incredibly diverse flora - particularly orchids. Common spotted and southern marsh are the most abundant types - often hybridising.

The site also contains an attractive pond (which often dries up during hot summers) near the southern boundary and two narrow strips of damp alder woodland along the east and west perimeters. Whilst the pasture is ablaze with the yellow of marsh marigold during spring, the woodland comes alive with a show of primrose, wood anemones, yellow archangel and dog violet.
