Dorset Wildlife Trust
A surviving area of Dorset heathland with views across Poole Harbour, Corfe Castle and the Isle of Purbeck
This is one of the largest surviving areas of Dorset heathland with views across Poole Harbour, Corfe Castle & the Isle of Purbeck. The nature of the terrain reflects its historic use for pottery & brick making. All 6 of the British reptile species are found on the dry heath along with stonechats & Dartford warblers. The boggy areas support many dragonfly species as well as carnivorous round-leaved sundew & raft spiders.
