Other Site Characteristics

A small glen cut through calcareous sands and gravels, with a tributary stream of the Dargle river flowing west to east through it. The site supports a strip of wet woodland, a small area of alkaline fen fed by petrifying springs, and grades to scrub and dry calcareous grassland on the upper edges of the valley sides.

4.2 Quality and importance

A small, but extremely species-rich site, with a high diversity of habitats in a predominantly agricultural area. The site is notable for the presence of many petrifying springs, for alkaline fen and for wet woodland.
