Riverside Meadow

The sites lie on the Great Ouse floodplain south of Olney. The meadows lie between the town and the river, while the Country Park is south of the river, north of Emberton. The meadows is a mix of improved and unimproved grassland, with ungrazed river edge and drainage ditch habitats, a seasonal pond, and a river bluff of lightly grazed limestone. Goosey Bridge is an ancient bridge of great but simple beauty linking the meadow to an island in the river. There are lovely views back to Olney church.
