Foster's Green Meadows NNR is surrounded by rich hedges with field maple, wild service, spindle and elm. The largest field, known as Eades Meadow, is a hay meadow with ridge-and-furrow.
Main habitats: Lowland Grassland
Area: 12 Ha
Site map: Nature on the Map.
Although most NNRs are managed by Natural England, 88 are wholly or partly managed by other bodies approved by Council, under Section 35 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
Foster's Green Meadows NNR is owned and managed by the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust.
There is a great number of green-winged orchids in spring and autumn crocus in autumn. Other plants of note include fragrant orchid, twayblade, pepper-saxifrage, adder's-tongue fern and saw-wort. Invertebrate include chimney sweeper and burnet moths and common blue butterfly.
The NNR is located between Redditch and Bromsgrove, 3 km east of the B4091.
Please note that due to the fragility of the site, visitors should not stray from the public footpath that crosses part of the meadow.
The nearest toilet and refreshment facilities are at the Jinney Ring Craft Centre.
