Re-Wilding & Sustainability of The Water Meadows

Re-wilding of Preston Water-Meadows.

Anna and her family who have owned Preston Court farm for over forty years, have a passion for nature and sustainability.  Their vision is to restore the natural marsh and water meadow landscape of the Little Stour valley.

Just so you know in advance, the ceremony area on the water meadows may not be fully viewable all year round due to our commitment to wildlife and in conjunction with the wilding and natural regeneration programme of this carbon sink, when the water lays on the peatland as the meadows gradually return to their natural state with overwintering buntings and sedge warblers and to support the return of beavers and water voles and rare shining ramshorn snail and we hope, dipping birds such as plover and lapwing.  

This important and rare peatland captures and stores atmospheric carbon dioxide which is, today, so important.
