Pipe Green supports a rich assemblage of botanical and faunal species, some of which are listed on the United Kingdom Biodiversity Action Plan (UKBAP). Approximately two-thirds of Pipe Green is well drained meadowland that supports a rich range of grasses and broadleaved herbs. These include plant species such as adder tongue fern, bee orchid and common spotted orchid.
Leomansley Brook, (which feeds into Beacon Park, Minster Pool and finally Stowe Pool), crosses the Green (see image) and gives rise to a much wetter central area, which supports important wetland communities in and around the Brook. Here a wide range of damp-loving and wetland plants can be found including marsh pennywort, marsh valerian and southern marsh orchid.In addition this area supports a wide range of amphibians and invertebrates, as well nesting birds and over-wintering snipe.
