About the reserve

An ambitious project was undertaken several years ago to create a wildflower meadow from this pastureland. Vegetation from Close Sartfield nature reserve was cut, baled immediately and then unrolled at Fell's Field. Here it could dry and was turned regularly to allow seeds trapped in the bales to fall and so create a wildflower meadow.

Management: The meadow is cut for hay in late summer and then grazed over the winter months by sheep.
