Natural England - Dunkery and Horner Wood NNR

One of the largest terrestrial NNRs in England, Dunkery and Horner Wood both dominates and represents the local landscape. The Reserve has a complete transition from high moorland with internationally important wet and dry heathland to steeply sloping combe sides with grassland and bracken through ancient woodland to the Horner Water river valley.
