Broadeform Farm

Broadeford Farm hosts a bat maternity roost, nesting swallows and house martins.

The two fields of 1.08ha are semi-improved grassland bounded by a stream on the lower boundary and hedge-banks elsewhere. They were originally grazed, converted to arable in 1977, reseeded in 1978 then grazed, mainly by goats, until 1993. Since then, they have been rotationally cut as a simulated hay cut, leaving tussocky areas for fauna such as insects and small mammals.

A pond was created in 1980 with marshy areas.
