This limestone woodland provides shade for many species of ferns. Large mounds on the woodland floor are home to southern wood ants. Blue bell and wild garlic carpet the woodland floor in spring and greater butterfly and spotted orchids are in flower. In autumn you can see bright red berries on the Lancastrian whitebeam, whereas winter is the time to spot waders and wildfowl down on the foreshore.
