Scar Close, Ingleborough limestone pavement, National Nature Reserve

Tuesday 5th June, 2018

Scar Close is a botanically rich limestone pavement (fenced to prevent sheep grazing), part of the Ingleborough National Nature Reserve and managed by Natural England. We can hope to see lily of the valley, spring cinquefoil and bloody cranesbill. We will park near the Hill Inn and walk less than a mile, including a stile. This pavement can be treacherous so participants will have to be extremely careful while botanising, and the use of a pole will be advised to give support. If it is raining we will have to change our plans as it will not be safe. 

Leaders:  Julia Pearson and Alice Gingell
