    Description

    This large field is managed mainly as a wildflower meadow, with an annual mow and the removal of the cuttings as is good practice. A number of tree/scrub areas have been planted, including and a few non-native species, to diversify the habitat and provide additional interest. A scrape in the north-east corner provides a damper habitat, though it doesn't hold water all year round. Just outside the entrance gate and alongside the A50 is an urban drainage pond that also provides interesting wetland habitat.

    Wildlife Highlights

    The grassland contains a number of interesting wildflower species and the site overall is excellent for invertebrates. Roe Deer have been seen at this site in 2019.
