Deans Green

Two pretty meadows with a variety of plant life

This peaceful reserve comprises two meadows, one a species rich hay meadow, the other planted with trees but restored to a meadow. Species such as betony, devil's bit scabious and adders-tongue fern occur.

 

The East Meadow gives rise to a mass of wild flowers in late spring and early summer with betony, yellow rattle and sneezewort. A community of great burnet dominates the grassland in summer, attracting many grassland butterflies. West Meadow, thanks to ongoing management, now hosts a multitude of grasses and ragged-robin, providing a home for numerous insects including a nationally scarce click beetle.

 

The diverse plant communities found at Deans Green offer its visitors an array of colour throughout the year, with bluebells and violets carpeting the spinneys. The fringing hedgerows containing mature tree and shrub species such as oak, ash, hazel and blackthorn, provide an abundance of colourful autumn fruits for overwintering birds and other animals.
