The Snakes Head Fritillary was at North Meadow in Cricklade on the edge of The Cotswolds.
The Saxon town of Cricklade is the first town on the River Thames and North Meadow is a “water meadow” on the River Thames often submerged in water.
North Meadow has 80% of the UK’s “stock” of Snakes Head Fritillary – this delicate little flower is very rare.
With thanks to my old mate and fellow Tour Guide, the late Jim Baker. Lovely guy and gone way too early. It was him who told me about this place.
