Black Firs: 15 acre peatland site of international importance.

The presence of these latter tree species indicates the increasingly dry nature of the site. Some indication of the former fen vegetation can be seen along the ditches which still remain wet for much of the year. Yellow irises, Royal fern and tall sedges grow in the damp areas. Rare plants such as water violet and water dropwort are just managing to hang-on in the limited areas of remaining permanent water.


Also walking around the reserve is easy all year.
