Cam Peak


Cam Peak (morning) and Uley Bury (afternoon). If you’ve noticed a blue hill to the east as you drive down the M5 south of Stroud, that’s Cam Peak. Before the bracken canopy overtops it, the hill is covered in bluebells, and having acidic soil, it has some unusual plants for the area and at the very top, Bird’s-foot Ornithopus perpusillus. Park in the free car park at the foot of the hill Cam Long Down Car Park, Satnav GL11 5HH, ST767993.
After lunch we will drive to Uley Bury to start 14.15. Meet at the roadside
parking area near the northern entrance to the fort ST787993. This is on the
west side of the B4066 Crawley Hill, 1km north of Uley. The east-facing banks
of this Cotswold hill-fort are very species-rich and have the uncommon Wall
whitlowgrass Drabella muralis (formerly Draba muralis). Leaders Clare and
