Moor Farm is a mosaic of heath, dry and wet pastures, bog and woodland.

Moor Farm is a mosaic of heath, dry and wet pastures, bog and woodland, on Fen-edge sands and gravels. Much of the woodland has developed from abandoned pastures during the last 80 years. The diversity of habitat supports a wide range of plants and animals, some of them now rare or localised in the Trust's area. Over 240 species of plant, 100 of bird, 24 of butterfly and 250 of moth have been recorded.

The woodland is managed to develop maximum natural interest by selective thinning, while the bog area has been cleared of scrub, and measures are taken to retain a high water-level. The grassland areas are grazed or mown in a traditional manner in order to retain their existing characteristics.

The roadside gate may occasionally be locked ‘out of hours’ due to incidents of misuse. Pedestrian access available; please park carefully.
