Wonderful Wilderhope Wild Flowers

Wilderhope is a brilliant place to go for a walk because of the impressive manor and stunning views but it is especially beautiful at this time of year with its many wild flower meadows. The meadows are full of flowers such as yellow rattle, red clover and bird's foot trefoil and are humming with pollinators!

In our very small meadow called the pudding bag a number of common-spotted orchids are flowering. We are really pleased that these species are present as it shows that our long-term grassland management which involves, mowing, grazing and hay strewing is working.
