A rare opportunity to explore some of the classy calcareous grassland of this SSSI. Expect to see a range of plants typical of limestone soils, including Common Rock-rose Helianthemum nummularian. Fairy Flax Linum catharticum abd Wild Thyme Thymus drucei. We will also keep an eye out for rarities such as Somerset Hair-grass Koelaria vallesiana and Dwarf Sedge Carex humilis.

Numbers are limited as this is private land. Please contact Jenny Greenwood via [email protected] (or fill in the form below) to register and for location details.
