Lugg Meadow Nature Reserve


A guided walk and river dipping experience suitable for the whole family.

Lugg Meadows are traditional floodplain meadows on the outskirts of Hereford City. In spring areas of Lugg Meadows are carpeted one of the UK’s only wild populations of snake’s head fritillaries. Other unusual species include nesting curlewcrow garlic and narrow-leaved water-dropwort.

The River Lugg supports a range of wildlife including otterAtlantic salmonbrook lampreyriver lamprey and water crowfoot. Within the floodplain are the Lugg Meadows Sites of Special Scientific Interest. 

We invite you to explore this special site in the company of our expert nature reserve officer and Wild Play practitioner. After a guided walk, have a go at river dipping. There’s nothing so satisfying as splashing in a river, but have you ever taken a closer look to see what lives there? River dipping is a great way to tell how healthy your water is and perfect to engage budding nature enthusiasts!
