About the reserve

The woodland is full of bluebell and dogs mercury during the spring, and early purple orchid and moschatel (town-hall clock) are also found.

The grassland areas are rich in limestone flowers including Autumn lady's tresses, Autumn gentian and salad-burnet. Silver-washed fritillary, brown argus, dingy and grizzled skipper butterflies have been recorded.

The reserve was partly gifted to the Trust by the daughters of the Auther and Bullard families and partly purchased with support from YANSEC and Mr A Carey.
