Four meadows, formerly part of the farm at Upper Edwards Hall, surrounded by ancient hedges and with a long-established pond. The meadows were last ploughed in the 19th century and now they are cut for hay in summer every year. As a result they are rich in wild flowers and attract butterflies and other flying insects in summer. A variety of birds nest in the trees and hedges, and in winter it is a good place to see large flocks of redwings and fieldfares, visiting from Scandinavia
