Nature and wildlife at Grogram Wheel

Beside the Public Bridleway that leads past Grogram towards Mousehole Forge, can be found some of the most common trees in the valley: Alder, Ash, Crack Willow, Elder, Goat Willow and Sycamore. There is also a variety of common wild flowers such as Cow Parsley, Cleavers, Herb Bennett, Herb Robert and White Deadnettle.

There is a large Wych Elm on the river bank beside the weir, as well as Alder, Hawthorn and Sycamore. Look closely at the river bank and island here and you will see discarded molten metal (from the nearby Mousehole Forge) that has solidified over the rocks.
