17th April 2016 – Brown’s Folly, Bathford, near Bath

Brown’s Folly lies on the Wiltshire – Somerset border and is the site of a major complex of disused Bath Stone (Oolitic Limestone) mines. Much of the area is now wooded with shaded rock exposures and there is also a tract of interesting limestone grassland in a disused quarry. It has not been surveyed in any detail but there are previous records of Seligeria pusilla, Entodon concinnus and Tortella nitida.

Meet in the free car park off the minor road between Bathford and Monkton Farleigh at ST797663.

Leader: Sharon Pilkington.
