MEETINGS: Once or twice a month on various days to minimise recurrent clashes with members' other commitments.
We are always happy to welcome new members. None of us claim to be experts but try to puzzle our way to the names of the organisms we find. If you are interested in joining us or want more information please contact us.

We usually meet at the Co-op car park, Church Road, New Mills at 10 am. The number on walks is limited only by having enough seats in cars. Attendance varies with members’ diaries, inclinations and the weather (we are sensible people, not masochists).

Come and join us. There's no limit to the number on the mailing list.

NEXT VISIT

Wednesday 28 August 2019
Minninglow and Royston Grange

We will walk along part of the High Peak Trail past Minninglow with its Neolithic tombs then descend into the valley to Roystone Grange before returning to the car park.

The habitat covers some small areas of woodland, long and short limestone grassland along the trail and a small piece of limestone paving towards Minninglow which is rare in the Peak District. The sides of the trail are rich in wild flowers and there should be a variety of birds with the potential for blackcap, whitethroat and skylark amongst others.

Meet New Mills Coop Car Park - 10.00am to car share.
