Sunday 3 May, 2pm
This is a species-rich stretch of the North Tyne containing, as well as such species as Globeflower (Trollius europaeus) and Northern Bedstraw (Galium boreale), England’s only site for the northern species Holy-grass (Anthoxanthum nitens). We will be the guests of Antony Braithwaite in his private grounds and are invited to park at the Castle (where we will be directed to parking) and it would be helpful to double up on cars where practical.
Meet at Haughton Castle, 1 mile north of Humshaugh (grid ref NY919729).
Leader: Prof John Richards
