On Sunday, June 16th Monmouthshire Meadows Group offers visitors a chance to see some wonderfully restored wildflower meadows near Shirenewton. Entry to both sites is free.
Northridge House has been transformed by current owners Ann and Michael Robinson from neglected pastures full of brambles and bracken to five acres rich with Summer wildflowers. The fields are south-facing and have a stream and mature trees, as well.
The Shirenewton and Mynyddbach Fields Association (SAMFAL) will also be opening their fields, which provide a green oasis between the two villages. The 11 acres provide a mixed habitat with a small stream and should be full of flowers and insects, providing the ideal place to walk on a Summer afternoon.
For more information and details of how to get there, see the Monmouthshire Meadows Group website.
Monmouthshire Meadows Group is a small charity aiming to transform fields into areas rich in biodiversity of plants, insects and animals. The Group provides training and advice to a wide variety of people, from those wanting a mini-meadow in their back garden to larger landowners interested in improving wildlife habitats.
