About the reserve
Acquired to prevent it being drained, rotovated and reseeded this small site was known by local naturalists at the time as the Adder's Tongue Field. Ranging from species-rich grassland to a type of bog, there is a varied flora which includes orchids, pignut, knapweed, tormentil, bog myrtle, bog asphodel and bogbean.
Management: The areas of open grassland are managed by an annual cut with scrub clearance undertaken when required to maintain the bog habitat.
