Settled Ancient Pastures
Site Code: 32G03
District: West Oxfordshire
This old allotment site is important for the presence of a large population of the wild grape hyacinth. Similar in appearance to the garden variety this is a different species that is very rare and this is the only Oxfordshire location. Part of the site has been built on and efforts have been made to retain this species in the remaining undeveloped area and to reintroduce it to some other local sites where it once occurred.
