AONB: Shropshire Hills

Meadows, pastures & verges

The Marches Meadow Group was created to bring together local people who have an interest in conserving meadows and other species-rich grassland.  27 meadow sites have benefitted from green hay or seed provided from species-rich donor sites and 20 hectares of flower-rich hay meadow are now under better management.

Roadside verges were surveyed and the most species-rich verges mapped. Two Parish-based projects have arisen as part of this work and are taking forward management and restoration work.
