Haddon Moor

Haddon Moor is a 5ha block of Culm Grassland which is easily accessible from the main road and Upton village. It is bordered by managed hedges and a small river which is used by Otters. The floral interest includes special plants such as Pale butterwort, Petty whin and Small skullcap while Sphagnum moss and Bog asphodel may be seen in the wet flushes. Orange tip butterflies may be seen during May, Green Hairstreaks in May-June  and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries in June. During the winter, some scrub is cut by volunteers. Cattle graze from June to August to manage the Purple Moor-grass.
