Sotby Meadows

Small meadows with rich grassland and hedgerow flora.

These small meadows with the adjoining green lane and large old hedges form a landscape and wildlife feature of special interest, representing a type of countryside that has now almost vanished in Lincolnshire. There is a rich grassland flora which includes pyramidal and green-winged orchids. The hedges are fine examples of old species-rich hedgerows. Seventeen breeding species of birds have been recorded in the hedgerows.
