Wansford Pasture & Standen's Pasture

A remnant of limestone grassland with species-rich springs and flushes

The richest areas for plants are the flushes dominated by blunt-flowered rush, with other species such as fen bedstraw, large bird's-foot-trefoil and distant sedge. Rarer wetland species can also be found, including large southern marsh-orchids as well as common spotted-orchids.
