Silverines Meadows

Meadows that are set amid the small hedged fields around Goulceby.

From the Red Hill reserve high on the chalk escarpment to the east you can look down towards Silverines Meadows set amid the small hedged fields around Goulceby. There is an abundance of the silvery-white meadow saxifrage here, a localised plant of sandy soils (could this be the origin of the picturesque name Silverines?). An additional attraction is a small marsh and stream where there are southern marsh-orchid, common spotted-orchid, kingcup, ragged-robin and water avens.
