Fiddlers Elbow is a semi-natural broadleaved
woodland that has other habitats essential to the maintenance of
the special wildlife interest. These include running water and
scrub. This diversity of habitats similarly supports a wide range
of species and these too are a key component of the special
interest of the site.
