Traditional hay meadows rich in wild flowers

Family venues near Sutton Lane Meadows

Three enclosed fields of exceptionally species-rich, unimproved, neutral grassland, managed as traditional hay meadows, near Chippenham. Two are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest and the other is a designated County Wildlife Site.

With its fantastic population of green-winged and southern marsh orchids, Sutton Lane Meadows is one of the best meadow sites in Wiltshire.


  • Dogs are welcome, please keep them under control as the site is occasionally grazed by livestock
  • There is very limited lay-by parking on Sutton Lane (not National Trust) and a 250 yard track to Sutton Lane Meadows
