Wildflower Meadow Walk

27 June 2018

Explore the exceptional wildflower hay meadows at Bell Sykes Coronation Meadows with our meadow restoration and wildflower expert Sarah Robinson. 

Join us for a lovely walk around Slaidburn and the River Hodder, and explore the exceptional wildflower hay meadows at Bell Sykes - a Coronation Meadow and Site of Special Scientific Interest - led by our meadow restoration and wildflower expert Sarah Robinson.

The flower rich meadows at Bell Sykes are designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of the wide variety of meadow species they contain. These meadows are also the Coronation Meadows for Lancashire chosen as outstanding examples of our remaining meadows for their species diversity, public access and for their ability to be used as ‘donor’ meadows to provide seed for the creation of new meadows to help restore this precious habitat.

Bell Sykes meadows is one of the last unimproved flower-rich grasslands in this part of Lancashire. Often only tiny fragments of meadows remain, but due to the large number of fields here it’s possible to be entirely surrounded by one of the rarest habitats in England.

Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear and bring a drink/snack. Optional pub lunch afterwards. Sorry, no dogs.
