Site Code: 59W15
This site consists of a small area of wet willow woodland and a small wet hay meadow. Both habitats are national priorities for nature conservation. Wet woodland is particularly rare in Oxfordshire.
The main importance of the site is the large population of Lodden lily. This rare plant is found mainly in wet sites along the Thames in Oxfordshire and Berkshire and the River Lodden in Berkshire, which gives the plant its name. Other wildflowers found here include marsh marigold, which is found in the woodland and meadow, meadow-rue and the colourful blue flowered meadow crane’s-bill.
