Description

Size: 0.7 hectares

Grid Reference: TL 42267 0490 {phocamaps view=map|id=25} or {phocamaps view=link|id=25|text=Map}

Ownership: Copped Hall Estate

Access: Accessible via the public rights of way network. A footpath runs through the site leading from Epping Long Green.

Countrycare has managed this unimproved meadow since 1986. Situated on the northern edge of Nazeing Common, this small field is in fact part of the Copped Hall Estate. 

It is especially notable for its spring flowers and butterflies and forms part of the Epping Long Green West Local Wildlife Site Complex Ep55. 

Each year staff and volunteers undertake a haycut that helps the wildflowers to thrive.
