Bulwick Meadows is a 4.2 hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Bulwick, north-east of Corby in Northamptonshire.

These marshy meadows are in the flood plain of the Willow Brook. There are diverse wetland flora, including rare species, and it is the only known locality in the county for the flat-sedge Blysmus compressus and common bistort. It is also one of the very few sites in the county where snipe breed.

Main Road in Bulwick bisects the site, and Willow Brook runs along its eastern boundary. There is no public access to the southern part, but a footpath runs through the northern one.
