Well done Scotland for giving Beavers protected status. How about a Bowland reintroduction scheme next. How about Dunsop or Roeburndale I can think of a few other places that could be suitable. They could be a great help with flood prevention if managed well.
Sycamore and wych elm dominate the remaining woodland. Although it has suffered from Dutch Elm Disease, the elm is regenerating well. Ash, oak, gean (wild cherry), hazel and holly are also present. Spring is the best time to visit. Bluebells and lesser celandine, with ferns and wood avens emerging during the summer. Towards the bottom of the slope, in marshy areas crossed by boardwalks, are yellow iris, marsh marigold and meadowsweet. Grid ref. (SD579314)
