The hay meadows at Hill Top are an iconic part of the farm that Beatrix Potter loved and worked in. We'd love you to join us on 1 July to celebrate their rich diversity and to discover more about these havens for nature.
Once the very essence of a carefree English summer, hay meadows are in decline. That's why we're working hard with our tenant farmers to restore hay meadows, providing vital habitats for wildlife. Find out about our Lake District wide celebration of hay meadows kicking off with special events at key sites to celebrate National Meadows Day on Saturday 1 July.
Visitors to Fell Foot can immerse themselves in the Round the Meadow Walk. Throughout July, we'll be running meadow flower ID workshops, butterfly survey walks, guided walks with guest speakers and art workshops.
