Mickfield Meadow: The unusual mix of plants growing here adds to its botanicalinterest. In parts of the meadow you can see goldilocks buttercup and the low growing wood anemone - both plants more usually associated with ancient woodlands. In the wetter parts look for marshland flowers like ragged-robin, meadowsweet and the beautiful snakes head fritillary - one of only four sites in Suffolk where it can still be found.


The boundary hedges are maintained by the traditional method of coppicing. This involves periodically cutting sections to the ground, whichencourages regrowth and creates a long living, dense hedge that is great for wildlife.
