This site is a small area within a large riverside field where water rises to the surface and fen habitat is found on peaty soils. The fen has large sedge tussocks along with small sedges and rushes and a good variety wildflowers including marsh valerian, marsh pennywort, devil’s-bit scabious, marsh marigold and ragged robin. Part of the site has wet alder woodland. Fen and wet woodland are rare habitats in Oxfordshire and are national priorities for nature conservation.
