CANCELLED - Sorby NHS (Sheffield) - Roche Abbey, Maltby

Lichen meeting to Roche Abbey, Maltby
Saturday 18 April 2020
Leader: Steve Price, email: email@example.com
The shallow valleys around Roche Abbey offer parkland trees, woodland edge and outcrops of magnsian limestone. Thus plenty of habitats for us to study. Existing lichen records for the site date from 1982 and are mostly from the outcrops.
Meet at 10.30 at the parking area by the Abbey Gatehouse (grid ref SK541900). There is a brown tourist sign on the A634 about 1.5km to the south-east of the outskirts of Maltby.
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. The meeting is expected to last all day.
