High Wood Meadow

UK»England»Northamptonshire»High Wood Meadow

High Wood Meadow: High Wood is an enchanting ancient woodland.

Much of the Meadow is acidic grassland where herbs such as cats-ear, tormentil, sheeps sorrel and heath bedstraw grow. Other more marshy areas provide ideal growing conditions for ragged-robin and wild angelica. Patches of hawthorn scrub and gorse flourish on the meadow providing a patchwork of habitats. You may see evidence of badgers and foxes here. The rabbit population keeps the grassland short, while buzzards often appear overhead.
