Description

These unimproved meadows lie over clays and shales of the Lower Lias on the north bank of a small tributary of the River Char. As a result of a long history of traditional management, partly for hay, there are extremely rich communities of grassland plants. Dry and damp neutral grassland occurs on the slopes with wetter plant communities in hollows and on lower ground
