Update from Natural England
We are now approaching the peak of the flowering season – the further you walk up the meadow the more fritillaries you will see without leaving the path.
PLEASE don’t destroy what you have come to enjoy – Please stick to paths marked with posts, visitors have started to make their own paths in some areas or follow ditches by mistake – whilst you may think you are being careful there are far more non-flowering individuals which look like grass that are easily trampled. Dogs also trample, and disturb ground nesting birds so please keep them on a short lead. Each year paths are getting wider, meaning the display further away!
Please allow access for everyone by not parking on the pavement or blocking the gateway when parking.
TOP TIP – bring binoculars, this will enable you to see the true extent of the flowers further out in the meadow.
We have placed a whiteboard at the entrance to the meadow giving up to date information on the best areas to see flowers.
Enjoy your visit!!
