This site consists of three long narrow ponds. Two of the ponds are largely filled with bulrush and there is little open water. One pond has willows growing in the water. The largest pond has more open water and also areas of tall wetland vegetation dominated by reed grasses and some bulrush. This habitat is known as swamp because it often inundated by water.
A variety of wetland and aquatic wildflowers are present including water mint, yellow flag iris, meadowsweet and water plantain. At the edge there are areas of wet willow dominated woodland. Wet woodland and tall wet wetland habitat are national priorities for conservation.
