This hay meadow has escaped agricultural improvement through the use of herbicides and fertilizers or through ploughing and reseeding. Consequently it is rich in wildflowers. The field is quite wet and has ridge and furrows which are a sign of medieval ploughing but also a sign of a long period without disturbance. Ridge and furrow is an important historical landscape feature. Meadows such as this are a national priority for nature conservation.
Wildflowers found here include an abundance of yellow rattle, common spotted orchid, oxeye daisy and knapweed. In the wetter areas there are many sedges and rushes and wetland wildflowers such as marsh bedstraw and tubular water-dropwort.
