Annesley Woodhouse Quarry: The species rich grassland site covers just over 2.25 hectares and the sites steep open slope supports plants typical of limestone soils, such as tor-grass, quaking-grass, cowslip, yellow-wort, and birds-foot trefoil, along with herbs like burnet saxifrage, wild thyme, small scabious and purging flax. More neutral grassland dominated by tall fescue is found on the more level ground.

The small area of marsh at the lower western side of the reserve is dominated by meadowsweet, hard rush and float grass and supports many wetland plants including marsh marigold, fen bedstraw, marsh valerian, adders tongue fern and ragged robin.
