An area of grazing marsh and ditches or dykes lying in the floodplain of the River Arun. This site was originally listed as 'bog' in the SPNR's questionnaire. Although there has since been some degradation of habitat over the past century, particularly through drainage, the dykes are renowned for their rich stonewart flora as well as pondweeds. Over half of all the British species of aquatic plants can be found here. The area is now jointly owned by the Sussex Wildlife Trust and RSPB and managed by the RSPB.
