Wildflowers galore for our visit to Grass Wood

Posted on

The PLACE outing to Grass Wood on June 8th took place in perfect weather!   James Ferguson of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust gave us a wonderful tour of the nature reserve, pointing out  the current management work and discussing plans for the future. The spring flowers were at their best: carpets of bluebells made a lovely woodland setting. Among the rare plants seen were herb Paris, lily-of-the-valley, early purple orchid, rockrose and bird’s-eye primrose. Lunch was eaten at Fort Gregory – a Romano-British site on the top of the hill. The visit was much enjoyed by 21 people and one small dog.
