Duck End is the last surviving remnant of Maulden Moor – a peaty area drained and turned over to agriculture and horticulture in the 19th century.  It comprises a mixture of grassland, scrub, marsh and ponds with old willows and has been designated a County Wildlife Site.  The site is owned by Beds County Council and is leased and managed by the Greensand Trust.

Maulden Church Meadow is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  It is an ancient meadow on clay soils, with diverse hedges and three ponds.  In places the the underlying lower greensand is exposed, giving rise to a flora more typical of acid grassland.  It was once the site of a medieval manorial home farm.  The site is owned and managed by Beds County Council and a private landowner.
