Ridlins Mire: This small area of wetland has developed where water, in the form of a spring, appears at the surface at the junction of two geological deposits; permeable sands and gravels overlying impermeable boulder clay.


In addition to the small peat bog area, there are two other parts to the reserve. The southern-most section consists of rank marsh vegetation with scattered scrub, and this is separated from the peat area by a small, grazed meadow, and a belt of mature scrub.
