Prior’s Wood and Meadow is a broad-leaved wet woodland with a small, but interesting meadow area beautiful in Spring and Summer with its wonderful orchids and other wildflowers. The meadow also contains a great variety of grasses and sedges, and more than 100 vascular plants have been recorded.
The woodland consists of Sweet Chestnut, Beech, Ash, Alder, Birch, Sessile Oak, Yew, Elm and Small-leaved lime. Woodland shrubs include Eared Willow, Creeping Willow and Alder Buckthorn and ground floor include many ferns, mosses including Royal Fern, liverworts and lichens.
Meadow plants include Yellow-rattle, Ragged- Robin, Devils-Bit Scabious and the rarer, Whorle Caraway. A lovely sight with them all in flower!
