About the reserve
A small triangular piece of railway land. The calcareous soils here support an interesting variety of wildflowers. Although mainly a grassy area, there are dense areas of scrub of hawthorn, privet, purging buckthorn, dog rose and bramble. In autumn plentiful berries and other fruits attract many birds. The reserve is also good for butterflies.
