Frays Farm Meadows SSSI

One of the finest examples of rare wet grazing meadows in Greater London.

This Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) is one of the finest examples of rare wet grazing meadows in Greater London - providing habitat for snipe, harvest mouse and water vole.

The wildlife-rich Frays River meanders through the luxuriant Frays Farm Meadows SSSI.

In spring, kingcups vividly pick out the damper areas and hard on their heels comes a splendid expanse of ragged-robin.

Management was taken on by London Wildlife Trust in 1999.
