Beautiful Abbey Meadows site officially opened to the public

Fareham Borough Council is delighted to have officially declared its new public open space, Abbey Meadows, open.

Running adjacent to Southampton Road in Titchfield, Abbey Meadows has around 20 hectares of land comprising footpaths, wildflower meadows, dog-walking areas, educational wildlife areas and an active apiary (beehive area). It also now has a new a children’s play area, which is modelled on the nearby Titchfield Abbey.

Served by a central footpath, Abbey Meadows offers a tranquil place to visit within Fareham and forms a key part of the Titchfield Abbey Conservation Area.

Since taking over the site in 2018, the Council has been working to establish new meadows filled with wildflowers and plants. There are also future plans to create a new community orchard as well as planting native trees to help grow and support local wildlife.

Free car parking is available at Mill Lane Recreation Ground, off Mill Lane and also off Cartwright Drive where the new play area is best accessed.

Executive Member for Streetscene at Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Ian Bastable, said: “We are delighted to declare Abbey Meadows officially open to the public. It is different from our other outdoor spaces as it will not only help us to continue developing the biodiversity and wildlife interests in the area, but the peaceful setting allows visitors to fully enjoy nature in all its glory.
“It was also lovely to welcome back the children from Titchfield Primary School, who were so instrumental in the creation of the new natural style play area. It enables children of all abilities to play together and will be a huge benefit for the local community and visitors to Titchfield.”
