This is a very interesting and important site as it is one of only a few lowland woodland pastures that are maintained by the traditional method of grazing by commoners' stock.

This practise has resulted in a wonderful mosaic of woodland and grassland. A fantastic range of fungi and lichens cling to the ancient trees and dead wood and there are many woodland flowers. If you want to see how the medieval landscape might have looked, this is the place to visit.
