£6 Adults, £4 Children (50% of the proceeds of ticket sales will go to Harnham Water Meadows Trust)

Meet at Rose Cottage, Town Path, Salisbury SP2 8EU (by the bridge over the radial gates leading to the Old Mill pub at West Harnham)

Put your wellies on and come and see the traditional watering of the Harnham Water Meadows!

Hatches will be lifted and the waters will rise, filling the channels, which will overflow onto the grass to make it grow in winter. This demonstration will bring to life how these beautiful meadows are managed. Experts will be on hand to lead the walk and describe exactly how the process works. Suitable for all the family, but no dogs please.
