Bowland Hay Time

Description of activity

The Bowland Hay Time project has restored 35 ha of meadows during 2014 & 2015. This has been possible through partnership working with the N4N project, LEF, the Coronation Meadows project, NE and YDMT. We used green hay and brush harvested seed, as well as plug planting on several sites.

In 2016 we restored 20 ha with a further 11ha in 2017, all using green hay, brush harvested and vacuumed seed. Sites included SSSIs (New Ings and Tarnbrook) in need of seed addition.

In 2018 a further 3 meadows of feild scale restoration were completed through Bowland Haytime

Expected outcomes of activity

Increase in the resource of meadows across the AONB, with all the landscape, wildlife and wider benefits this brings.
