Conchological Society field meeting - Freshwater meeting (River Wey)
25 June 2010 23:00 - 23:00
Location: Froyle, Hampshire, UK.
Meet at 10:30 h at the service road by the Hen and Chickens pub on the A31, grid ref. SU 756421. Bring packed lunch.

The northern Wey is a chalk stream that arises in Alton and is very rich in freshwater molluscs. Through Bill Stanford of the Bentley Fly Fishers (who will probably join us) we have permission to access private riverbanks to Bentley. We would particularly like to look for Pisidium amnicum and large mussels.
Members of the Northern Wey Trust and Alton Natural History Society may join us.
Appropriate maps for the area are Explorer map 144 Basingstoke and Landranger map 186 Aldershot and Guildford.
