Cefn Rofft, Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr

Coronation Meadow

Part of Cefn Rofft SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) this meadow is one of the best remaining fragments of species rich neutral grassland in the Denbighshire area. Throughout spring and summer, there is a magnificent display of wildflowers including greater butterfly orchid, fairy flax and field scabious along with birds foot trefoil, black knapweed and grasses such as crested dog's tail and common bent which can be seen here in abundance. In Autumn, a range of colourful grassland funghi can be seen; over 12 species of waxcap have been recorded here.

Species to spot / Rhywogaethau i’w gweld



  • Greater butterfly orchid

    Best time to see: June - July

    Despite its name this dainty flower is largely pollinated by moths, attracted by a vanilla scent that grows stronger at night. The lesser butterfly orchid looks very alike - the main difference the size and position of its pollen sacs.

  • Adder’s-tongue fern

    When to see: June - August

    Its bright green, serpentine spike is a distinctive sight and likely the "adder's tongue" in question. A good indicator of ancient meadows. Image © Andrew Gagg/Plantlife.

  • Bird’s-foot trefoil

    Best time to see: May-Sept.

    Also known as 'eggs and bacon', Bird's-foot trefoil is a good source of nectar for insects and forage for cattle. The 'bird's-foot' of its name refers to the shape of its seed pods.
