Yarncliffe Barn Meadows, Longshaw Estate
In late summer 2016, Yarncliffe Barn Meadows, a site of just under 10ha, was chain harrowed in preparation for restoration. Seed was collected from Rose End Meadows, the donor Coronation Meadow for Derbyshire, by brush harvester and by hand. The seed was then spread by hand at Yarncliffe Barn. In addition, 8000 plugs will be planted out in 2017 to further enhance the site.
