High Meadow

High Meadow (c) White Cliffs Countryside Partnership

High Meadows is a Local Nature Reserve owned by Dover Town Council and managed by the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership.  Up on the Downs has facilitated two phases of work.  The first has seen an area of overgrazed horse paddocks returned to a more appropriate form of livestock management. 

This has involved the removal of delapidated structures (as shown in the photo above) and the installation of stock fencing. 

The second phase has extended the area grazed so that it joins Whinless Down.  One of the most positive results of this phase of the project is that it connects High Meadow, Whinless Down and Nemo Down to form a 62 hectare area of continuous chalk grassland, all of which is on the rural-urban fringe and much of it is used for recreational purposes by local people.

This second phase started with the clearance of scrub and removal of hazardous waste from the site as can be seen below.
