About

Southorpe Meadow is a small, wildflower-rich hay meadow with the ridge and furrow structure created by a medieval oxen-plough still visible. The show of wild flowers begins in spring with cowslips.

Look closely in the damper furrows in early summer and you'll see adder's-tongue fern nestling beneath the taller grasses.
