Bastow Wood

Tuesday 25th July, 2017
near Grassington

We will access this open limestone woodland via Grass Wood, having parked at Grass Wood Lane. The walk will be less than 4 miles in total but it must be borne in mind that it is uphill all the way. We will however be going at a slow pace. The group has visited this site several times so most will be familiar with the terrain.

The rare Scotch Argus butterfly should be on the wing as will Dark Green Fritillaries. It is towards the end of the flight period for Northern Brown Argus but some may still be about.

Toilets will be accessed in the YDNP car park. There are no cafe facilities in the woods.
