Latchmore Brook flows between Fritham in the heart of the forest to the
River Avon in the west and is best approached from the
Ogdens Car Park.

to avoid the crowds by exploring the feeder streams to
the north of the main flow where the majority of
dragonfly fauna can be found.
The stream itself is superb
for Beautiful Demoiselles and Golden-ringed dragonflies while the peat
bogs and flows to the north are good for Keeled Skimmers, Small Red,
Southern and the rare Scarce
