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.
