Coe Fen and New Bit, Cambridge

Recipient Meadow

This popular green space near the centre of the city, close to the Cam, will be enhanced over the coming years. Work began in summer 2014 when a trial plot of land at New Bit was seeded by hand with seed collected from Cambridgeshire's donor Coronation Meadow. In 2015 it is planned that seed will be brush harvested from Chettisham Meadow, Cambridgeshire's donor Coronation Meadow, to be sown at Coe Fen and New Bit. It is hoped that as a result of these enhancement works, species such as cowslip and ox-eye daisy will establish and thrive here in the future.
