This is the main meadow overlooking the railway and Hither Green Cemetery. Best seen in July, it is one of the only meadows in the borough that has a lowland chalk characteristic.
Various flowering plants of the pea family such as meadow vetchling, bird’s-foot-trefoil, common vetch and tufted vetch- all of the pea family – thrive here.
A peace pole rises up from the embankment in the centre of the meadow. Constructed by local sculptor, Heather Burrell, the pole features the word ‘peace’, carved into its metal flowers, in languages spoken by youngsters in near-by Baring School, whose choir sang at the unveiling of the pole in 2009, to celebrate the visit of former local resident, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
