About the reserve

Part of a much larger wetland site, this nature reserve is an extremely boggy area of marsh and curragh associated with the Cranstal Trench.  It provides a home for many species including marsh marigold, lady's smock, ragged robin, meadowsweet, yellow iris and purple loosestrife.

Management: This site is left largely undisturbed.
