An ancient wood close to Morecambe Bay noted as a place of scarce 'insects, plants and birds'. Along with Striber’s Moss and Deer Dike Moss, this has become incorporated into the Roudsea Wood and Mosses National Nature Reserve (NNR) and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The site consists of saltmarsh, acid and limestone woodlands, and lowland raised bog. It supports all kinds of wildlife including over 280 species of fungi, and rare plants like Lancashire whitebeam and true fox sedge. Dormouse, red squirrel and otter frequent the site; while birds such as nightjar and skylark breed here. Now managed by Natural England.
