In a remote Wealden valley, beyond Battle in Sussex, are a series of wild flower meadows frozen in time. Rocks Farm meadows owe their continued existence to the dedicated conservation work of farm manager Keith Datchler who was awarded an OBE for his services to conservation in 2008, and It's been my pleasure to work with him over the years.

The species-rich meadows are a glimpse of what once flourished across the High Weald but are now a rare and threatened habitat. A visit on a still June evening is an unforgettable experience.
