Life in the Meadow

One of the few greenfield spaces in Stoke-on-Trent.

Incredibly, Barratt Homes think the meadow will look better when covered with tarmac and high density housing and they’ve destroyed mature trees and wildlife habitat.

Diverse range of local residents snapped using the Meadow.

We haven’t captured photos of the water vowls, newts or other stream based wildlife just yet, but Barrett Homes seem to think the destruction of the habitat for these residents is “insignificant”!

Update 2/3/2015

Residents capture more photos of young egrets in the meadow.
