97% of traditional hay meadows in England have disappeared since the 1940s

We are a growing group of meadow enthusiasts living on both sides of the Welsh Marches in Shropshire and Powys. We are interested in the management and conservation of wildflower rich hay meadows of all sizes from patches of lawn upwards. Please look at our website and feel free to contribute to our discussions, come to our events or join the group.
