About the reserve
Found at the far north end of Lugg Meadows Reserve is Lugg Mills Island, formed by the confluence of the River Lugg and Little Lugg. Partly flooded over in winter, this riverine habitat supports a range of species. The unpolluted river supports a healthy otter population and over 120 species of river plants are present.
