    Vicarage Meadows Nature Reserve
    [​IMG]

    This wildflower rich meadow and wet pasture is set on the side of a hill in the Irfon valley and lies adjacent to the Nant Irfon National Nature Reserve.


    Many years ago, the local vicarage owned Vicarage Meadows. The fields provided a hay crop and a place to graze horses and cows. The small stone barn was used as a shelter for milking cows.


    The BWT continues to use traditional management methods with a hay crop being taken off one field and Exmoor ponies grazing the whole site, giving the reserve's many wildflowers the chance to flourish.

    DIRECTIONS:
    Take the unclassified road to Abergwesyn from Llanwrtyd Wells or Beulah. Just south of Abergwesyn, the road crosses the River Irfon. Adjacent to the river are two gates. Parking is by the side of the public road north of the Irfon bridge. Go through the gate nearest the river, follow the track past a small cottage on your left, passing through another gate, just after the cottage. Walk up the slope and through the gate on your right. The entrance to the reserve is immediately on your left.
    Nearest town: Abergwesyn. Post code LD5 4TP.
