A New Green Haven for Test Valley Communities

Test Valley Borough Council is pleased to announce the opening of Bury Hill Meadows, a safe and accessible green space for the surrounding communities.

The site, once an arable field, has transformed into a beautiful wildflower meadow featuring mown paths and benches for visitors to enjoy, providing easy public access to the countryside.

A section of woodland will be planted in collaboration with Andover Trees United, expanding on the successful tree planting carried out with local school children in 2022.

Dog wakers are welcome along the mown paths, with dedicated areas for training and exercise.

Access to the site is encouraged on foot or by bicycle, and a small car park is available for those traveling from further away.

Councillor Phil North, leader of Test Valley Borough Council, expressed his excitement for the opening, saying:

"Bury Hill Meadows is a testament to our commitment to the environment and community well-being. It offers a sanctuary for residents to connect with nature and enjoy stunning views. We thank everyone involved in making this project a reality."

The council invites residents and visitors to experience the natural beauty of Bury Hill Meadows and help preserve this valuable green space for future generation.
