Wildflower meadow

The wildflower meadows on Ducketts Common contain more than 30 native wildflowers.

The meadows were planted by volunteers from members of Christ Church London and local residents. It took 10,000 volunteer hours to complete. 

The meadows attract many insects such as bumble bees and butterflies.
