Gwen and Vera's Fields

One of the few wild daffodil meadows left in the area known as the "golden triangle", these fields are carpeted with native wild daffodils every spring. Throughout the year there is wildflower interest, and along the woodland boundaries birds such as nuthatch, chiffchaff, blackcap and jay can be seen. There are a few old orchard trees standing in the fields.

This is a great nature reserve to visit in the spring when you'll see it at it's glory as a wonderful carpet of golden wild daffodils appear. This nature reserve has wildflowers throughout the year; and the autumn-flowering meadow saffron and common spotted orchid flower can be found in the western field. Nuthatches, chiffchaff, blackcap and jay's can be seen along the woodland boundary.
