Red House -
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.
