The Meadows Map shows the locations of West Country meadows. Building up a network of meadows in close proximity to each other is important for wildlife, enabling them to move about through ‘wildlife corridors’.
Meadow makers can also see the proximity of their meadows in relation to others, encouraging greater potential for sharing of information, contractors and grazing.
Please note the vast majority of these meadows are privately owned and there is no public access. However, several of them open as part of Open Meadows in summer, so check out the Events page here and on the Meadow-Makers’ Forum, from April.
On the Map, a meadow which shows with a green flag is within Dartmoor National Park. A meadow with a blue flag is within Devon but outside Dartmoor National Park. A meadow with a yellow flag is in a county outside of Devon.
Within the Dartmoor National Park, 260 meadows have been submitted, with a total area of 1030 acres
Within Devon, but outside the Dartmoor National Park, 312 meadows have been submitted, with a total area of 1289 acres
Outside Devon, 34 meadows have been submitted, with a total area of 184 acres
Click on a marker to view details of that meadow. You can zoom in and out and scroll the map to view all meadows.
