Not an official nature reserve, but an SSSI managed by Norfolk Wildlife Trust. The site is a mosaic of lowland heath, woodland and scrub, with a valley mire, which is very wet and has deep water in places. It is the closest site to Norwich for Nightjar and Woodlark and often holds Jack Snipe in Winter.
