Ramsden Corner

A small secluded reserve worth exploring for its suprising variety of habitats

The northern section of the grassland at Ramden Corner is acidic, with abundant sheep's sorrel and bent grasses giving the grassland a red sheen through much of the year. There are also large quantities of heath bedstraw and sweet vernal-grass, together with the yellow flowers of cat's ear and tormentil.

A large number of bird species have been recorded on the reserve, including redpoll, brambling and grasshopper warbler.
