Kiplingcotes Chalk Pit YWT Reserve

Tuesday 4th July, 2017

Nestled in a narrow Wolds valley near Market Weighton, Kiplingcotes Chalk Pit provides a haven for chalk loving plants and animal species. We will see a variety of chalk loving flora including Pyramidal and Common Spotted Orchid also the nationally rare Red Hemp Nettle. Butterflies and insects should be abundant including the Marbled White butterfly.

Walking is easy on the flat floor of the quarry. The reserve is exposed so protection will be needed as we would hope to have a sunny day.

Leaders: Joan Dobson and Margaret Rees
