Berrington Pool

Berrington Pool is a small but deep mere in a steep sided hollow, with water of comparatively low fertility. There is a rich flora of emergent species, including some which are uncommon, notably slender sedge at one of its most southerly localities in Britain. There are extensive beds of white water lily. Vegetation dominated by water horsetail and bottle sedge is better represented here than at any other Shropshire mere. Other emergent plants include greater reedmace. The aquatic fauna is of interest, especially for dragonflies, of which ten species are known to breed here. The site includes an area of fen at the western end of the pool, with a flora which includes bladder sedge and, in a ditch, water violet.
