Castle Meadow, Camrose Farm, Haverfordwest

Recipient Meadow

Castle Meadow is so called because it backs on to a motte and bailey, now half-hidden in the woods. Private archaeological investigations have uncovered small lead musket balls and other artefacts from previous centuries. This 1.4 hectare site was last ploughed by horses, as evidenced by a faintly visible ‘spine’ running lengthways down the field.
In summer 2015 seed was brush harvested from Mountain Meadows, the donor Coronation Meadow for Pembrokeshire. The seed was then spread here and rolled and it is hoped that species such as eyebright, burnet-saxifrage and perforate St John's-wort will establish and thrive.
