Nature and wildlife at plonk Wheel

The former Plonk Wheel mill dam is situated on the bank above the trail path and is completely overgrown by trees and undergrowth. However, there is a wet area crossing the dam and the ground flora is quite diverse, including Bluebell, Celandine, Golden Saxifrage, horsetails, Stitchwort, Pink purslane, Violet and Wood Sorrel.
