Kingcombe Meadows

This caused much national interest when it came on the open market in the late 1980's because it had been untouched by all modern farming methods. With its unimproved grassland, ancient hedgerows, green lanes, ponds and streams it remains rich in its variety of grasses, herbs, lichens, butterflies and fungi.

This near to Kingcombe Meadows is also well worth a walk.
