High Meadow Symonds Yat

Grid Ref SO538154

Highmeadow woods stretch from the view point at Symonds Yat down to the River Wye and is the haunt of the Peregrine Falcons. At a little over 500 feet above sea level, Yat Rock is one of the most well known view points in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. We cleared some glades along the upper track which leads to Christchurch allowing sun light into the area.The river at Symonds Yat has cut a deep gorge in the carboniferous limestone exposing many impressive cliff faces. Peregrines have nested in the limestone cliffs of Coldwell Rocks in the Forest of Dean for the past 20 years. The crevices in the rock face are also ideal nesting sites for other birds such as ravens and jackdaws
