About Ring's End Nature Reserve

This 11 hectare site runs north-south between the village of Ring's End and the Twenty Foot River, and lies on part of a disused railway line.

The site contains extensive reedbeds, three large ponds and small areas of scrub. The main path through the reserve runs along the old railway embankment, allowing good views across the fen. Various events are also held on site.

Running along the length of the reserve, the track bed is composed of free-draining gravel and fine soil, which is nutrient poor and exposed. This has allowed many of the less common wildflowers (including Colts-foot) to become established and is attractive to many butterflies, invertebrates and reptiles.

Extensive reed beds and open water (three ponds of various sizes) sheltered by scrub create a valuable retreat for wetland birds. Notable tree species include mature Ash and White willow and Ring's End is also home to stands of perennial Rose Bay Willow Herb, Mugwort and other perennials.
