About the reserve

The reserve forms part of a larger area of curragh associated with the Lhen Trench to the south.   This seasonally wet meadow includes an area of curragh on its eastern edge. Over 100 plant species have been recorded in this small reserve.

Management: The grassland is cut annually in the late summer, once the plants have flowered and set seed. This management has created a very diverse and attractive little meadow.
