About the reserve
Hoe Road Meadow nature reserve is the perfect spot for a gentle walk, particularly in the summer months. On a bright summer’s day, the meadow shimmers with small copper and common blue butterflies, flitting between the many wildflowers, including ox-eye daisies, bird’s-foot-trefoil and field scabious.
During the spring and summer you will likely hear yellowhammers, and the hedges around the meadow provide plentiful food for flocks of fieldfare and redwing during the winter months.
Hoe Road Meadow nature reserve was donated to the Wildlife Trusts over 20 years ago by supporter Nancy Mason.
