Lies to the east of Wool in the River Frome floodplain. The terrain ranges from reedmarsh & wet woodland to oak copse. Reed fen is a declining habitat in the county, but one which has provided much information on the history of vegetation changes.
- Common reed dominates the reedbeds, providing good reed warbler territory.
Best time to visit:
Spring for the bluebells & early summer.
Limited footpath access & very wet all year.
