Hartington Meadows

UK»England»Derbyshire»Hartington Meadows

During the summer months Hartington Meadows is bursting with the colour of wildflowers. The grassland is managed as part of a working farm, and is cut for hay in mid July which encourages meadow flowers such as hay rattle and meadow vetchling. On the rock outcrops different flowers grow, among them are clustered bellflower and dropwort with the rough grassland providing breeding sites for skylark and ground nesting birds. The disused limestone quarry faces provide breeding sites for cliff nesting birds such as kestrel and jackdaw and various orchids and other limestone flowers thrive, because of the dangerous state of its faces there is no access to the quarry.
