About the reserve

Brockhurst Meadow is a hidden gem in the heart of the Braydon Forest offering some wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.
Tucked away on the northern edge of Brockhurst Wood and close to the Iron Age hill fort of Ringsbury Camp, the reserve is a single hay meadow containing small areas of woodland and scrub. It is crossed by a spring-line, formed by unusual underlying geology.
What is special about this reserve is the marvellous variety of wild flowers you can see in a small space, brought about by a pattern of wet and dry areas.
