The meadows

The wild flower meadows in Arrow Valley Country Park are stunning in their summer bloom.

Proctors Barn Meadow is a designated Local Nature Reserve, and Bordesley Abbey Meadows are an extremely rich and diverse habitat with remnants of the fish ponds that the medieval abbey monks probably used for food as well as a bog.

Both are part of our waymarked Meadows Trail.

We manage all our meadows according to the needs of the wild flowers - grazing at certain points in the year and hay cutting in the summer are essential parts of this.
