Harvey's Meadows lie at the eastern end of Hungerford. The meadows are of international importance for their population of the rare Desmoulin's snail as well as being the largest surviving example of agriculturally unimproved pasture in the Kennet Valley with many rare plants. The meadows a mix of species rich wet grassland with fen areas dominated by sedge and rush. The site is grazed with cattle over the summer months. To the south of the site lies the River Kennet, again of international importance, for its rich fauna and flora and well known for its fishing.
