"Meadows, once a feature of every parish in Somerset are now an increasingly fragile part of our national heritage but all is not lost. National Meadows Day is the perfect way to explore and enjoy the flowers and wildlife of Somerset's magnificent meadows and understand their special place in our shared social and cultural history.
"Beyond being a quintessential sight of summer, meadows' value to our wildlife cannot be overstated -- a single healthy meadow can be home to over 80 species of wild flowers, such as cuckoo flower, yellow rattle, orchids, knapweed and scabious, compared to most modern agricultural pasture which typically supports under a dozen species."
Claire Parton, 'Save Our Magnificent Meadows' Project Manager for Somerset Wildlife Trust
