Helen’s Close, Upwood

Recipient Meadow

In summer 2015 restoration work began at Helen's Close, a site of 2 Ha just off Meadow Lane. The field was scarified before seed collected from the donor Coronation Meadow, stored and dried, was spread by hand here with the help of volunteers. Additional seed collections have taken place to ensure that later flowering species such as devil's bit scabious, great burnet, saw-wort and betony were included.
