SupportersThis site is part of the Working Wetlands Project area, which is supported by a number of funders. For further information visit the Working Wetlands webpage.
Vealand Farm lies on the Culm measures, in the extreme west of Devon. The nature reserve is exceptionally diverse in some compartments. This diversity is due to the presence of a variety of semi-natural and man-made habitats, grassland, scrub and open water.
The majority of the site is agriculturally improved pasture and is of low conservation value. The most important area is the molinia dominated high quality Culm grassland containing wavy St Johns wort and an abundance of commoner species such as Devil's bit scabious, meadow thistle and purple loosestrife.
