Mill Meadows is a 90-acre Local Nature Reserve and one of the finest ancient meadow systems in Essex. The site is owned and managed by Basildon Borough Council.
Centuries of grazing have created the ideal conditions for a wonderful diversity of wild flowers, fungi, insects and invertebrates, many of which are rare. It contains an area of 16.63 acres (6.73 ha) declared as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its unimproved neutral grassland.
