A Devon Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve
Thirteen fields of wildflower-rich Culm grassland make up this smallholding which has remained unchanged for decades.
About the reserve
Meshaw Moor is what many parts of mid and north Devon would have once looked, smelt, felt and sounded like.
It's patchwork of small irregular shaped fields are bounded by hedges. The fields themselves are classic Culm and flower-rich hay meadows. So rich is Meshaw's crop of summer flowers we often harvest its seed and use it to restore grasslands elsewhere.
