Urch Meadow, Rodney Stoke

Recipient Meadow

Nearby to the Cheddar Gorge SSSI, this field of 2ha will be enhanced over the coming years. Work began in summer 2014 when the site was power harrowed in preparation for seed spreading. The seed, which had been brush harvested from Somerset's Coronation Meadow, Chancellors Farm, was spread by hand by Somerset Wildlife Trust volunteers and the site was then rolled with a Cambridge roll. It is hoped that plant species such as birds foot trefoil, field scabious and yellow rattle will establish in the future.
