Four meadows, formerly part of the farm at Upper Edwards Hall, surrounded by ancient hedges and with a long-established pond. The meadows were last ploughed in the 19th century and now they are cut for hay. As a result they are rich in wild flowers.
The meadows attract butterflies and other insects in summer. A variety of birds nest in the trees and hedges, and in winter it is a good place to see large flocks of redwings and fieldfares, visiting from Scandinavia.
Main entrance at the end of Bosworth Road, Eastwood, a turning off Rayleigh Road (A1015).
Accessible at all times. Car park open daylight hours only.
Spring for nesting birds; summer for wild flowers and butterflies
