It consists of valley mire, unimproved damp acid grassland, scrub, stream and Hornbeam woodland.


The wood in which Danemead is located is known to possess significant archaeological and historic interest.


Breeding birds in the reserve locality include sparrowhawk, woodcock, cuckoo, all three woodpeckers, garden warbler, treecreeper, hawfinch and bullfinch, with possible redpoll and siskin. The Spital Brook is a significant and highly attractive feature of the reserve, its margins supporting many fine hornbeam pollards.
