The reserve is tucked away and has no roadside signage or parking, but a short walk through the gate opposite the entrance to Sandwich Industrial Estate and along the farm track will take you to the entrance. This reserve recreates, from arable fields, traditional wet grazing meadows once common to the flood plain of the River Stour. The habitat attracts large numbers of wintering wildfowl and waders from the arctic that find sanctuary in the reserve, while breeding waterfowl and other wetland species occur in the summer.
