There is one house at the northern end of the island. The centre of the island is covered in mature trees: e.g. pines, oak, sycamore, hawthorn, elder and ash. There is a perimeter path and also one across the top of the island. The island is roughly oval in shape and is about 500 metres from north to south and 200 metres from east to west. When I visited in early September 2015 thistles, buttercups, dandelions, birds foot trefoil and meadowsweet were in flower. There were also plenty of nettles and brambles.
