Sorby NHS (Sheffield) - Hay Dale NNR

14th July 2018

Hay Dale NNR in a Derbyshire December!

Event Description:

Saturday 14 July 2018

Sorby NHS (Sheffield) - Lichen meeting to Hay Dale NNR, Derbyshire

Leader: Steve Price (email: lichenrecords@sorby.org.uk)

We will be looking at the outcrops and trees in this shallow limestone dale. Records from walk-through surveys do exist but having looked at those records there is much yet to be revealed about the lichens of this National Nature Reserve. Also at this time of year the flowers should still be fairly impressive!

Meet at 10.30am at grid ref SK112774. This is roadside parking about 2km south of Peak Forest on the Wormhill road near the track (Pennine Bridleway) that leads east into the dale.

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