Walks with Martin Smith – London’s Coronation Meadow
16 July @ 10:30 am - 12:15 pm
A stroll round the meadows for history, wild flowers and butterflies. From the Coronation Meadows website:
Part of Horsenden Hill, the largest single nature conservation site within the Borough of Ealing, Horsenden West is the Coronation Meadow for Greater London. Bordered by the Grand Union Canal it contains a mosaic of wildflower meadows, hedgerows and ponds.
“Between the 1950s and 1980s, the site had very little nature conservation value as it was mostly cut as amenity grass. However now it is managed for the wildflowers, walking through it gives you the impression you’re in the countryside, not greater London. The surrounding habitats are also valuable, including wetlands and mature hedges” – Tim Crane, London Borough of Ealing Ranger
