A meadow beside Chigwell Road in Woodford Green has become an important addition to local ecology, according to a senior nature conservation ranger at Vision RCL.

“In 2013, we put in an earth embankment around Dartnalls Field, next to Broadmead Baptist Church… Over the years, we have been trying to work out the best formula for managing it. With our grounds team doing a great job in the winter to cut back the meadow, it has been allowed to grow and become a very important place for pollinators,” said Francis Castro.
