Ashes Pasture

near Ribblehead, Yorkshire Dales.

We made a brief visit to this YWT site in Ribblesdale last summer. We are returning today with more time to explore both the main pasture and upland hay meadow and the recently acquired adjacent fields. A range of orchids grow amongst other grassland species. There aren’t any paths around the reserve so we need to tread carefully to avoid the flowering plants. Some areas can be damp.  If we wish to visit another site, Brae Pasture is not far away. 
Toilets stops on route.
