This small reserve is on part of a former claypit but now contains a tranquil pond, grassland and areas of scrub. The ponds and their margins contain plants typical of this sort of habitat including: broad-leaved pondweed, yellow flag iris, water plantain and lesser spearwort.
Reedmace also occurs around the main pond. The grassland areas contain a good variety of relatively common species including early purple orchid and cowslip. The ponds form a good habitat for common frog and toad as well as great-crested newts. In the autumn there can be thousands of tiny toadlets making their way from the pond. Dragonflies such as the common and ruddy darters and azure damselflies are prevalent. A number of small mammals are present on the site. The birdlife of the site is limited due to its small size but common species of 'garden' bird occur as do moorhen, linnet, sedge warbler and reed bunting.
