Ron Ward's meadow

One of Trust's largest flower-rich hay meadows

This flower-rich grassland is a reminder of how much of the countryside would have looked in the early 20th century. No chemicals have been used on this land, ensuring the survival of the wildflowers and butterflies that rely on them. Plants that can be found here in the meadow include dyer's greenweed, common spotted and southern marsh hybrid orchids
