Went To A Coronation.

Had an afternoon out at Upwood meadows in Cambridgeshire. The meadows are one of sixty meadows across the country that have been designated as a ‘Coronation Meadow’.

Upwood Meadows

This is a project led by the Prince Of Wales that will take seed and green hay to recreate new meadows. Meadow habitats have decreased by 97% in the UK since the 1930’s so this is an important project.

Upwood meadows are awash with wild flowers during the spring and summer. There are also three ponds but one has dried out completely and the water levels on the other two are extremely low – just shows how little rain we get in Cambridgeshire.

After a walk around meadows taking a few photographs me and my wife settled under the shade of a tree for a dose.
