About the reserve
The reserve consists of two small meadows adjoining Hatton Wood. Tall hedges surround most of the meadows and a small beck with a gravel bed makes a dog-leg course through the meadows. There are two small ponds in the west field. Many butterflies, including some scarce species have been recorded, among which are purple and brown hairstreaks, white admiral, common blue and large skipper.
