Fiddlers Elbow

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.
