Peaslands Knapp is a 2 acre wildflower meadow purchased by the Sid Vale Association in 2010. A much needed footpath between Peaslands Road and the Knapp nature reserve is now in place, with a fenced meadow adjacent to it. Visitors are politely asked not to bring dogs into the fenced area so that families and schools can explore it for minibeasts and wildflowers, confident that it is clean and safe.
