Managing the meadows

We aim to conserve and develop this ancient meadowland by working to:

  • allow growth from spring to summer
  • remove unacceptable weeds using suitable herbicide during growth
  • cut late summer to assure seeds are mature and dispersed before cutting
  • remove hay to avoid adding nutrients
  • graze in autumn to remove growth to about 10cm
