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.


Our monthly Sunday task mornings restarted as of 5th July, meeting at 10.30am in the meadow.
Usual Covid-19 restrictions apply e.g. don't come if symptoms, waiting for test etc.
Volunteering currently allowed but we need to adhere to social distancing rules.
