This is an area of semi-natural woodland, fen and grassland and open water designated as a Site of Scientific Interest and is a wetland of national importance for its wildflowers and unusual habitat. It is the main source of the Hamble River and a place where springs bubble up and streams feed a mill pond. The pond is a good spot to see Kingfishers, Little Grebes and Emperor Dragonflies. The meadow to the west of the pond is managed in a traditional way, being cut for hay and grazed by Highland cattle. The main part of the Moors is managed by Hampshire County Council’s Countryside Service and is open to the public.
