Ledston Luck and Roach Lime pastures

East Leeds

Our last visit to these two small magnesium limestone sites was in July 2015. Both have a great deal of botanical interest including several species of orchid. The first of these is a former coal pit at SE 429 311 with a mix of ponds, woodland & grassland. Roach LP is at SE 418 314 & is on a calcareous outcrop. Butterflies & dragonflies are to be found in good numbers. Walking is easy. Toilet facilities at Kippax Leisure Centre
