Sunday 12th November 2017 – Dodpen Hill and Champernhayes Marsh, near Bridport, Dorset

These mixed woodlands on the south-eastern fringes of the Blackdown Hills on greensands and acid clays have a rich woodland flora, with species such as Hookeria lucens, Trichocolea tomentella and several Sphagnum. Some of the flushes in the area were outstanding, but were largely lost to conifer plantations in the second half of the 20th century. But have they survived at all? They have not been visited much in recent years, so there could well be some surprises.
