Chaceley Meadow

Chaceley Meadow

Chaceley Meadow nature reserve lies on the eastern edge of Chaceley village. Although some distance from the River Severn the meadow occasionally floods in winter. The nature reserve is encircled by mature hawthorn and blackthorn hedges, and includes a large number of old white willow pollards which are home to many birds.
