BBOWT Guided Walk at Meadow Farm
Join us for a guided stroll through the tapestry of flowers and grasses, and discover what makes Meadow Farm so special. These hay meadows with ancient ridge-and-furrows are a remnant of old farming methods; abundant in wild flowers, insects and birds once taken for granted. This guided walk is an opportunity to feast your senses on the changing flowers and grasses, and find out how this rare habitat is cared for. It covers under 1 mile and will be led by a member of site staff. BOOKING ESSENTIAL

We advise bringing wellies if we’ve had some rain, sturdy boots otherwise. Parts of the site are quite exposed, so please bring suitable windproof / weatherproof coats, jackets, or sun hat as required.
