Midsummer Meadow is an open space divided into two separate areas with the west section being kept mown and serving as an area for informal sports and play. It is also the venue for visiting circuses and the annual Dragonboat Race.
The eastern half of the area is left in a semi-natural state and leads to the Barns Meadow Nature Reserve.
Within the eastern area is a chimney, built in 1862, all that's left of the towns laundry.
