The reserve is 34.6 ha and consists of woodland, grassland, streams, ponds and hedgerows.


Great Newbridge Copse is 12 hectares and is an ancient semi-natural woodland. It has 110 species of trees and plants recorded including 33 of which are specifically associated with woodland of ancient origin. It is a bluebell wood with an impressive display on the east side each spring. It is estimated that the this woodland absorbs 65 tonnes of carbon per year.


10 hectares are mainly broadleaf plantations established between 1990 and 1992 at 30+ years since planting, they are estimated to absorb 165 tonnes of carbon


12 hectares is permanent grassland with no inputs of chemicals or natural fertiliser and is cut once a year for hay. The plan is for it to eventually become wild flower meadow. The estimated absorption of carbon for the grassland is 28.8 tonnes.


We have 1630 meters of hedgerows most with mature trees, the estimated absorption of carbon for the hedgerows is 7.3 tonnes.


The above together with 2 streams and numerous ponds makes for a very diverse range of habitat. This habitat supports large numbers of insects and birds and a good number of reptiles, amphibians and mammals. Birds and moths are monitored and recorded and submitted to the relevant organisations.
