Woodland walks by Monk's Brook passing through flower rich wet meadows and woodland
Flexford Reserve is a popular green haven amid the surrounding urban development. In Upper Flexford Monk's Brook runs through the woodland supporting a good variety of birds and plants. Downstream the wet meadow of Lower Flexford is a nationally scarce habitat, which is fed from Monks Brook.
The field is a blaze of colour in spring and summer with many flowering plants. Plants such as marsh-marigold, marsh and spotted orchids, ragged robin and flag iris are but a few of the flowers that can be seen here.
