Update from Natural England
The fritillaries are now just passing their peak, but there are still plenty to see on all marked routes – the further you walk up the meadow the more you will see without leaving the path.
Please continue to stick to paths marked with posts – 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.
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!!
