Cumbria's Coronation Meadow

It's a long time since I've been 'wowed' by a meadow! Cumbria's Coronation Meadow nestles between Carrock Fell and Blencathra; next to Eycott Hill. Full of red clover, eye-bright and ox-eye daisies it is a spectacular sight. The site has had green hay form Piper Hole near Ravenstonedale spread on it together with hand collected seed. It is part of the Coronation Meadows scheme that is creating at least one new meadow in each County to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation.

The backdrops of Blencathra....

...and Carrock Fell.
