Croston Marsh

UK»England»Lancashire»Croston Marsh

Croston Marsh contains one of the best examples of reedbed in this part of Lancashire. In an area where agriculture has so severely modified the landscape, this reserve is a pocket of semi-natural vegetation tucked away between the railway and the road.

The western section contains the main feature of this reserve, an area dominated by common reed with hemlock water-dropwort, marsh pennywort, gipsywort, marsh fern and soft-rush hidden away among the reeds. The developed scrub is mainly hawthorn and willow with elder and blackthorn occurring along the old hedge-lines. The eastern section consists of a fen community with soft rush. Cyperus sedge, water horsetail and reedmace.
