Open Meadows – Postbridge

  • Date: 16 June 2019
  • Time: 10am - 4pm
  • Address: Challacombe Farm, Postbridge PL20 6TD
  • Grid ref: SX693 794

Take a walk around the hay meadows which Naomi Oakley & Mark Owen are restoring with green hay, and the wet, rhos pastures which should have Marsh Fritillary butterflies flying if the weather is good. There will also have a selection of lovely Icelandic and Shetland lambs for people to come and meet and watch playing.

Parking: In signposted flat field with shade.

Other notes: The event is free and there is a self guided marked walk of about 1 kilometre. Visitors with mobility issues or small children are welcome to park very close to the meadows to reduce the distance.

Everyone is very welcome, there is a loo, free tea and coffee, and nice dogs on leads can come too. Bring a picnic and stay longer, perhaps going for a longer walk, bird watching or just enjoying being in nature. See https://www.dartmoorfarm.com/ or Facebook for more about the farm.

Open garden meadow – Drewsteignton

22 June 2019

Come and be inspired by a meadow in a garden. Bas and Rosemary Payne's garden was once potato land, and then a frequently-cut lawn, but they let the grass grow up and were bountifully rewarded - with many wildflowers, butterflies, slow worms and more. Click here for more information.
