Ewelme Watercress Beds and Local Nature Reserve
Tue, Aug 7th 2018
|Tom Stevenson & Ann Truesdale
Ewelme Watercress Beds and Local Nature Reserve, at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, were dug out by the Smith family in the late 1880s, and were a local industry for around a hundred years. Today this historic site has been transformed into a nature reserve. Join Tom Stevenson for a history and nature walk around this fascinating site and see a short film of the old watercress industry. Meet at the visitor centre on The Street (OX10 6HJ, SU641916). Car parking available along The Street, but car sharing encouraged if possible. Tea or coffee will be available for a £1 donation.
Pre-booking by Sunday 5th August is required (firstname.lastname@example.org) as our hosts would like to have an idea of numbers beforehand.
