The reserve consists of reedmarsh and woodland with two blow wells, which are natural artesian springs caused by water under pressure escaping from the chalk through the overlying boulder clay. Such springs were once numerous in the Lincolnshire Marsh but most have dried up due to the depression of water-tables by increased abstraction. The wood may once have been an old osier bed. Beyond the wood is an area of wet pasture dominated by sedges.
