We have a licence agreement with the Town Council to manage some areas on Mill Meadows for wildlife, and we are working on returning a small part of the Meadows to wet flower-rich meadow and reed bed, an example of the type of vegetation which would once have been common along the banks of the Thames.

Many lovely wetland plants grow on Mill Meadows but they need a more natural environment in order for them to flourish. Increasingly threatened plants such as Cuckoo Flower, Ragged Robin and Marsh Marigold grow on the Meadows, and Southern Marsh Orchids used to grow there. A wildlife area will enable these plants to spread, and it will provide a home for a variety of invertebrates, and a good feeding place for many resident and migrant birds.
