About the reserve
The reserve consists of a single field showing a comparison between diverse original flora, found along the eastern edge of field, and species poor flora where artificial fertilizers have been applied in the past. The tightly trimmed hedge boundaries hold at least 8 different tree species including field maple, guelder rose and holly as well as climbing plants such as honeysuckle, ivy and field rose. They also provide habitat for small mammals and nesting birds.
