Roding Meadows Nature Reserve. It is owned by Epping Forest District Council and the Grange Farm Centre Trust and managed by Essex Wildlife Trust. It consists of unimproved hay meadows, hedgerows, with scrub, secondary woodland and planted tree. It follows the Roding over some of the open space in this area. The meadows are cut for hay in summer, followed by grazing by rare breed Long Horn cows. Ten miles of hedgerow is laid and coppiced. After heavy rain the area is prone to flooding. Four fields are designated a site of special scientific interest
