Baydons Meadow Wildlife Group

The group exists to manage Baydons Meadow, a field beside the river in Chippenham, as a hay meadow.

Over the years we are increasing the numbers of wildflowers and invertebrates, and are gradually reducing the incidence of coarse grasses and other vigorous plants.

We are a small group of volunteers, who would welcome help from anyone with a few hours to spare. We meet on the fist Sunday morning each month. Please see the Volunteering page for details and dates.


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic our monthly task mornings are cancelled. Existing members can volunteer for limited tasks at any time in very small numbers while adhering to the current Covid restrictions and guidelines. We hope to return to the usual meetings soon: meanwhile take care and stay safe.
