Tank Field, Osborne House, East Cowes
Tank Field, so called because it was previously the location of Prince Albert's original sewerage beds for Osborne House, is at the end of the Broadwalk on the route to the beach from Osborne House. Restoration work began in summer 2013 when green hay taken from Swiss Cottage Meadow was spread here. Following restoration works it is hoped that this site of approximately 1 acre will see species such as Devils Bit Scabious, Dyers Greenweed and Sawwort establish and thrive over the coming years.
