Goytside Meadows

UK»England»Derbyshire»Goytside Meadows

Goytside Meadows comprises three fields totalling 25 acres of unimproved and semi improved pasture and meadow lying between the River Goyt and the Peak Forest Canal to the south of New Mills. It was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 2003 and is owned and managed by New Mills Town Council. In the nineteenth century the area was described as, Flowery Meadows, with the three fields that today make up the reserve known by the names, Nice Eyes, Little Eyes and Higher Meadow, and Higher Flowery Croft. The best time to go visit Goytside Meadows is from April to October when you will see good displays of wild flowers and, maybe, less common species as well.
