About the reserve
A large wet meadow, a reed swamp, a pool and a wet woodland make up most of this riverside reserve - but why is it so wet? Because the river floods, there is an endless water supply running off the hills and the Montgomery Canal contributes too! The wet areas are what make this reserve important; one particularly significant plant is the weirdly attractive Sweet Flag, found here in abundance. Over 150 varieties of wetland plants have been listed at Red House including Bulrush, bur reed, Canary Grass and Yellow Flag.
