North Meadow is closed until further notice
The cold and mainly dry weather of the past week has helped North Meadow to start drying. The ground at the southern end of the meadow however is still very wet, with silt on the ground and water in some of the drainage channels.
Because of the continuing concern for the SSSI features and obstruction to footpaths the meadow will remain closed until the middle of next week, 4/5 May.
It is a shame that the meadow has been closed but I would like once again to express my thanks to everyone who has respected the fragility of the meadow and postponed visits.
The meadow will reopen again once ground conditions improve. Please keep checking this website and @necotswolds on Twitter for further updates.
