This first meadow adjacent to the former horse paddock will be restored to native grasses.

 

 

 

 

Pass through this gate and discover the beginning of the greater meadow as you follow the trail down its gentle slope.

 

 

 

The trail along the north border meanders between the woodland and the grassland.

 

 

 

 

 

As the trail circumvents the meadow it switches back uphill along the south side.
