I've got used to seeing Persicaria minor as a smaller plant in the drawdown zone at Knypersley and Rudyard Reservoirs, and in the field tentatively identified this as Persicaria mitis (the same mistake as I made at Bosley Reservoir last year). However the narrow leaves make this Persicaria minor.
 
Brown Moss is likely a known site for this species; there's a batch of records for the tetrad, and one for the neighbouring tetrad the site sticks its toe into.
