About the reserve

The reserve consists of woodland of oak, birch, rowan and Scots pine. The woodland has regenerated on former heathland, some remnants of which still survive in open glades. There are some fine trees and there is an impressive avenue of ageing Corsican pines planted apparently as the approach to a large house, which was never built.

The wood has a varied bird population, including great spotted woodpecker, treecreeper, coal tit and goldcrest. Fungi are a notable feature.

Management is designed to maintain the woodland by natural regeneration as far as possible. Where heather and other open heath plants survive, glades will be kept open and some will be widened.
