Northern Stream Carr Survey

Steep Southern Area

The southern boundary of this small carr is a steep slope joining the southern ends of both the Leat Footpath and the Boggy Path.

Just below this end of the Leat footpath is a large beech tree (Fagus sylvatica).

The slope is dominated by  well-established brambles, with many tree seedlings emerging through the brambles and near the  bottom of the slope is a large Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris).  There are also many tree stumps in various stages of decay, some with bracket fungi, others with mosses.
