Winson Meadows (grid reference ) is a 7.93-hectare (19.6-acre) biological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Gloucestershire, notified in 1974. The site is listed in the 'Cotswold District' Local Plan 2001-2011 (on line) as a Key Wildlife Site (KWS).
Location and habitat
The southern meadow is continuously wet and can be considered a true water meadow. It shows evidence of previous management as a water meadow as it has a pattern of ditches. The northern meadow is not so wet. Both meadows include grasses such Meadow Foxtail, Yorkshire Fog, Crested Dog's-tail and Cocksfoot. There is some perennial Rye grass in partially improved areas.
