Once owned and farmed by Hannah Hauxwell, who lived alone at Low Birk Hat Farm without the luxury of electricity and running water, the land was managed for hay and pasture and maintains the rich variety of wildlife that has been lost from many other Teesdale meadows. Now a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the meadows are considered to be some of the least improved and most species rich in upland Durham.
