Hazard Commentsort descending Description
Rough Ground If you venture into the meadow expect damp and rough conditions with no footpath.

Nature reserves exist for the wildlife and plants that are found there and are not always visitor friendly, especially some smaller reserves. The ground on some reserves can be very rough going even when there are paths present and would not be passable by those who are less mobile.

No Significant Issues The woodland has well made paths and board walks and is very accessible

This reserve does not have any significant issues that I identified on my visit but conditions can always change so be prepared for all eventualities.
