Event Description:

Sorby NHS (Sheffield) – Lichen meeting to Gillfield Wood, Totley, Sheffield

Saturday 22 June 2019

Leader: Steve Price, email: lichenrecords@sorby.org.uk


The meeting will produce a base set of lichen records for this woodland which lies to the south-west of Sheffield. It is being run jointly with the Sorby Invertebrate Group and will be a full-day meeting to look at and record both lichens and invertebrates in Gillfield Wood in the southwest of Sheffield.

Meeting at 10.30 at the bottom of Totley Hall Lane, Sheffield (S17 4AA) at SK30917941. We will have someone on parking duty so that we do not block access to farmland.

Approaching from Owler Bar in the west, travel down A621 (Baslow Road) into Totley, look for small crossroads with Pelican lights immediately after. Take a right turn onto Totley Hall Lane.

Approaching from Sheffield direction along A621 look for the Cross Scythes pub on your right on approach to the Pelican lights. Turn left into Totley Hall Lane.


As usual people with all levels of experience are welcome. Strong footwear and waterproof clothing are recommended. Bring a hand-lens, your usual field kit, lunch and drinks.
