Tara's Piece Nature Reserve

Tara's Piece

Tara's Piece was purchased by Anne and Philip Carpmael with Lord Marshall of Goring in 1982 to prevent the site being sold and developed and lost as a piece of original river terrace.

The steep drop from the Bridleway is a stark contrast to the gardens either side where the land has been re-profiled. At the bottom of the terrace there are the remnants of a ditch that ran from South Stoke to the Leathern Bottel. The marshy ground at the bottom is carpeted with Loddon Lillies in April and May.
