Alongside the stream in Cockles Field is a fantastic area of Wet Meadow or Fen, packed full of Sedges and Rushes.
The Somerset Wildlife Trust information board says this was possibly dug out for a boating lake, however an alternate local view is this area was created as bathing pits, for miners to wash in after working in the adjacent Coal mines.
There are a couple of mature trees in the wetland, providing ideal perches for Raptors hunting in the Sedges
The area is VERY wet underfoot, its VERY easy to lose a welly
The Sedges and Rushes are a year-round feature
The wetland needs management to prevent it reverting to scrub
