Magnificent meadows in Wales

Taking a stroll through a wild meadow at sunrise or sunset in summer is a magical moment. Sadly, around 97% of meadows have been lost since the 1930’s, but through the ‘Save Our Magnificent Meadows’ partnership project, we have revived and restored meadow landscapes across Wales, for everyone to enjoy.

Meadows are a part of the natural and cultural heritage of the British Isles, and feature heavily in our folklore and history. Flora, insects, bugs, reptiles, amphibians, small animals and birds all thrived in the lush pastureland.
