About the reserve

This grassland reserve is very species-rich, characterised by common rather than rare species. One of the best known wildflowers, the buttercup, is abundant here. Two clovers are common here; the white clover and the red clover. Beales Meadow is an extremely good site for amateur naturalists wishing to see how Britain's lowlands would have appeared 50 to 100 years ago
