CCC summer outing – Clattinger Farm Meadow

Monday 19th June  – CCC visit to Clattinger Farm Meadows, 6.30pm – 8pm 
Clattinger Farm, on the outskirts of Somerford Keynes, is one of the most ancient and impressive lowland wildflower meadows in the whole of the UK.
A precious remnant of Britain’s hay meadow, a type of grassland which has now almost completely vanished from our landscapes. Clattinger’s richness as a wildlife habitat is a lasting tribute to its previous owners, who farmed the land traditionally and did not use any artificial fertilisers – in fact it’s the only lowland farm in Britain known to have received absolutely no agricultural chemicals. Today, the meadow is considered the finest remaining example of enclosed lowland grassland in the UK, and is of international importance for its hay meadow wild flowers.’
There should still be Southern Marsh orchids and possibly the rarer Burnt Tip orchids out, but it’s just a beautiful place to immerse yourself in nature.
  • It would be really helpful to know numbers in advance so please send an email to or Whatsapp me on 07855399267 – by Friday 16th June.
  • If the weather is not good enough for photography we will cancel it by email and Whatsapp by lunchtime on Mon 19th June, and meet in the Greyhound Pub instead.
  • Meet at WWT Lower Moor Farm Car Park (Somerford Keynes Rd, Oaksey, Malmesbury SN16 9TW),(What 3Words ///movie.boost.harnessed)
  • From there it is an easy 10 – 12 minute walk to the meadows along a sheltered path….there will probably be lots of mozzies though!
  • Bring your camera, macro lens if you have one, something to kneel / lie on, and a tripod / beanbag if possible
  • If you have said you are coming but then cannot make it, please send me a Whatsapp, thank you 🙂
