Event Description:

BLS AUTUMN MEETING 2021 – Dingestow Court, Monmouthshire

COVID-19: This is the meeting originally planned for October 2020

Dates: to be finalised

 

Sam Bosanquet has invited the BLS to spend time at Dingestow Court (Old Lands) in central Monmouthshire (Grid ref. SO450097). There is parkland that needs studying and the house and grounds should keep masonry lichenologists happy. Sam has also offered to lead groups to some other areas such as the Blorenge limestone and gritstone screes.

 

For information the Dingestow Court website is https://old-lands.co.uk/

 

There is no one central base for the meeting. Accommodation in the area can be found through various websites including https://www.visitmonmouthshire.com/accommodation-in-monmouthshire

At the time of writing the self-catering cottages at Dingestow are all booked-up for the weekend.
