Banwen Meadows and Woods

DIFFICULTY:
  • Easy
HABITAT:
  • Grassland / Woodland
START POINT:
    Dove Workshop

Starting at the Dove workshop, take your time to explore the beautiful surroundings of Banwen Meadows and Woods. The network of tarmaced and gravelled paths allow exploration of the area.

Amongst the meadows you can find Red and White clover, water mint, Yarrow and Orchids. A fantastic habitat for butterflies and pollinators, take your time and investigate!

As you enter the young woodland, keep an eye out for fungi and signs of wildlife. Buzzards can often be seen circling above, whilst the mixture of bramble, nettle and native tree species create a wonderful habitat for birds, insects and mammals.
