Event details

20 May 2017 - 1:30pm - 3:30pm

A late spring guided walk across the meadows to Upper Common, the extension to Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve, bought in 2012. Find out about the management of the site and the wildlife that lives here.

Join us for a 2 hour guided walk through the fields of Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve. This is an opportunity to find out more about how we manage the site and to see how Upper Common, is developing as a hay meadow. We will look out for wildlife along the way and there may even be a few lambs in the fields! Alternatively our friendly herd of small Dexter cattle maybe around.

This event is open to all except younger children. The terrain is flat, but uneven.  It is an exposed site, so wear clothes suited to the weather conditions. Long trousers are advised, as is sturdy footwear - walking boots/shoes or wellies.  Be aware that the long grass can be wet even on a sunny day, following rain or from dew. Bring waterproofs or sun cream/sun hat and a drink. Although early in the year, be aware of the possibility of high pollen levels, bees/wasps, biting insects.

Chimney Meadows is accessed via single track roads. On arrival, park in the public car park on the left, as you enter the nature reserve.  Do not drive into the hamlet of Chimney.

When booking, please let us know number of attendees and if there are children in the party (including their age).
