    Description

    This area constitutes a large grassland area surrounded by mature hedges and trees. Grass paths are regularly mown but the remainder is cut only once a year to encourage wild flowers.

    Wildlife Highlights

    The rough grassland attracts many invertebrates and the hedges and trees offer good habitat for birds.
