About the reserve
Whitehouse Meadow was once part of a much larger landscape made up of a network of wet acid grasslands.
While the wider landscape was lost to development, Whitehouse Meadow was retained and now provides an important wildlife oasis.
Although small, it encompasses a little section of woodland as well as the open meadow. Wander through and you will find plant species such as lousewort, bedstraws and tormentil, along with butterflies like meadow browns flitting from flower to flower.
