We chose a glorious day for our Poet in the Meadow event.

Our meadows in High Borrowdale were looking spectacular and provided the perfect setting for our celebration of words and meadow flowers. Early grey skies and the threat of thunder receeded and the sun was soon shining on the spectacular upland meadows of High Borrowdale.

Poet, Harriet Fraser shared her own poetry and words of other poets fitting to the timeless setting; meadow flowers providing a vibrant backdrop to gathered poets and meadow lovers basking in early July sunshine.

Jan Darrall, our Policy Officer and property manager was at the site with a work party of volunteers, providing an opportunity to explain the effort and dedication required to create an upland meadow habitat and some of the challenges involved.

The extensive work of our volunteers has helped re-create the upland meadows, repair walling and plant 10,000 native trees, enhancing the habitats and landscape of High Borrowdale and transforming the area into a stunning habitat for wildlife and people. The journey to the meadows took us past a colony of Sand Martins competing for attention with resident Skylarks in their meadow habitat.

We'd like to thank everyone who attending and contributed to a wonderful day on our property in High Borrowdale. You can find out more information about our High Borrowdale property here: High Borrowdale>
