Trill Farm retains a range of natural habitats: marshes by the ponds; old flower-rich meadows, and relict patches of limestone grassland along the old railway. On this stroll we shall explore some or all of these habitats and the plants that grow in them. We will concentrate on getting to know how to recognise the commoner plants, and a flower book such as Francis Rose's The Wild Flower Key may be useful.
