Plants of Plessey Woods

This lowland woodland, by the River Blyth, is famously species-rich and an appropriate place to visit for World Biodiversity Day. We should find wood vetch (Vicia sylvatica), toothwort (Lathraea squamaria), and many other late-spring/early summer plants. The wood also has splendid displays of Bluebells. The distinctive ancient woodland moss Hookeria lucens is locally abundant. Meet at 2pm at the Country Park visitor centre car park, off the A192 near Hartford Bridge (grid ref NZ 237804).
