Chimney Meadows: Oxfordshire’s Coronation Meadow

Prince Charles today announced that Chimney Meadows has been designated Oxfordshire’s Coronation Meadow.

There is one in every county although more are due to follow by being seeded from these first ones which mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation.

Thames Path runs through lonely Chimney-on-Thames which lies between Newbridge and Lechlade.

Within living memory the meadows, one of the largest areas of unimproved meadowland in England and rich in wild flowers, were managed by two sisters who did not care for visitors or walkers. The area is now in the care of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust.
