Rack Isle

Dragonflies are a popular sight

At the heart of the village, lays a boggy meadow known as Rack Isle. It's an important habitat for wildlife and is home to many unusual plants and creatures.

As well as water voles, you might see kingfishers, grass snakes and dragonflies. Plant life is equally as abundant with swathes of pink ragged robin and yellow flag iris in early summer.

Belted Galloways

A small herd of Belted Galloway cattle graze the Rack Isle during late summer. They are very docile and are helping to conserve this important wildlife habitat by encouraging wild flowers to grow.
