Surviving grassland on Myton Pastures
When the English army advanced across Myton Pastures it was an open expanse of meadow but today only a tiny fragment of grassland remains. The rest is now under arable and there are hedges and trees to obscure the view. On the left is the massive flood protection bank against the river Swale which now makes it possible to cultivate this low lying floodplain area.
