Veilstone Moor is a fine example of Culm grassland. The extensive network of linked grassland and woodland areas make for an interesting site. The site has examples of most types of Culm habitat from areas of dry heath to quaking mires and flowing water filled ditches and runnels. There are also areas of alder flush and willow carr. On the northern and southern ends of the reserve there are examples of drier mixed deciduous woodland and scrub.
