April is a great time to visit Iffley Meadows

The sight of thousands of purple and white chequered snake’s-head fritillaries at these ancient wet meadows will take your breath away.

Snake’s-head fritillaries have been flowering since early April this year, and are at their best over Easter. The annual count, which took place on 12 April, recorded 75,508 plants – the fourth highest number since BBOWT took on the management in 1983.
