The Marsh Marigold is one of the many species of wild flower found in Cricklade's North Meadow.
In some areas it's called Kingcup. Its masses of bright yellow flowers brightens damp areas in spring and early summer.
Their buds used it be used for pickling as a substitute for capers.
The Hawthorn hedge, with its white blossom, at the back of the panorama, was probably planted in the 18th century when many fields and meadows were created.
