Sunday 16th February 2020 – Midsomer Norton, N. Somerset

WE ARE SORRY BUT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO STORMY WEATHER CONDITIONS

Midsomer Norton lies at the heart of the former North Somerset coalfield and old colliery tips are a distinctive feature of the town’s skyline. One of the largest is in the town centre and supports populations of calcifuge species that are rarely seen in N. Somerset. A recent visit produced three new liverwort vice-county records and it is a good place to see Lophocolea semiteres, an increasing species. If time allows we can also explore epiphyte-rich trees and a shallow river nearby.

Meet in the free South Road Car Park at ST 6658 5414.

Leader: Sharon Pilkington
