Skelshaw Meadows, Newton in Bowland

Recipient Meadow

This hay meadow of approximately 6ha sits in the Forest of Bowland AONB and is on the route of the Lancashire Witches Walk. Skelshaw Meadows had degenerated under previous ownership but restoration work has been undertaken, including the spreading of green hay taken from Bell Sykes Farm meadows in the summer of 2013. It is hoped that as a result of this work and ongoing management that species of wildflowers will establish here and attract a variety of wildlife.
