Highmeadow Woods

Grid Ref SO568142

Highmeadow woods stretch from the view point at Symonds Yat down to the River Wye and is the haunt of the Peregrine Falcons. We travelled nearly as far as the river to clear half circular areas in the woodland for the Wood White butterfly. The valley was steep and south facing. There was an abundance of scraggy and half dead hazel, willow, sycamore and ash to be felled.
