We have two areas of wildflower meadows.  The one alongside the spinney was ploughed and reseeded in the 1970's, which destroys the wildlife value of the meadow.  Since those times we have been encouraging wildflowers to return, which is helped by having original unploughed meadow in the next field, either side of the stream.  The original meadow is a valuable ecological resource as so little unimproved lowland meadow survives. It is officially a Local Wildlife Site.

The meadows are full of a wide range of wildflowers, many of which are under threat in modern times. In 2017 we introduced Snake's Head Fritillary (Fritillaria meleagris) which seems to be growing successfully.
