What you’ll find there…
Wildflower meadows to explore close to Shinfield and Spencers Wood. If you haven’t been here before, be sure to investigate the meadows on either side of Hyde End Lane. An obvious paths takes you from the car park into the adjacent land, but there are fields to discover on the other side of the road too.
On a recent visit, we enjoyed an impressive flock of over 50 goldfinch working their way through the meadows! Do look out for them, they’re very striking, especially if you have a pair of binoculars to appreciate their fabulous colours.
Dog walkers may like to know that the area is sometimes grazed.
