Three Groves Wood
Three Groves Wood and Strawberry Banks SSSI – Some pot luck recording on the way to these two fields of calcareous
grassland at SO 909033. Meet at the lay-by the roundabout at the top Cowcombe Hill at SO 910019. The intention is to use a public footpath/track to Westley Farm, cut across the field to the west, join Marley Lane and turn to the east onto the canal towpath towards Frampton Mansell, get to Baker’s Mill Reservoir and on to tarmacked Wysis Way; turn west, carrying on along the road until we will reach woodland and footpath on the right into the Three Groves Wood; up the hill across the woodland to Strawberry banks. With luck we may see marsh fritillary on the wing.
Carry lunch. Leader O Krylova 07800 928916.
