Details:
Ryewater Nursery is a very large reserve with a wide range of habitats, flowers and insects, all easily accessible. Originally a plant nursery, it has been turned into a nature reserve, with the emphasis on butterflies and dragonflies, and the range of habitats and plants is exceptionally rich.

Ryewater is at ST665106 (OS 1:50 000 sheet 194, Dorchester & Weymouth)

From the north – take the A352 Dorchester road south from Sherborne. After passing through the village of Longburton take the first left signposted Boyshill. Take the next left turn and after about ¼ mile turn right into Ryewater Nursery. There will be an ‘RPSNG’ sign with arrow.
