UK»England»Nottinghamshire»Mansey Common

Mansey Common: The reserve is supports species-rich neutral grassland and ancient hawthorn scrub developed on the stiff clays of the Mercia Mudstones. The grassland is dominated by tufted hair grass, with Yorkshire fog and red fescue also present. Great burnet, betony, dyers greenweed and knapweed are just a few of the colourful but scarce plants to be found on the common. The dumble which runs along one side of the reserve is a steep sided valley dominated by mature trees and a ground flora reminiscent of ancient woodland. Dumbles are common on the Mercia Mudstones and form due to the action of streams on the relatively soft marls and waterstones underlaid with Bunter sandstone.
