Conchological Society field meeting - Brockadale, Southwest Yorkshire


02 July 2010 23:00 - 23:00

Location: Brockadale, Southwest Yorkshire, UK.

Event description

Meet in the Brockadale YWT nature reserve car park at SE 513174 at 10:30 h. The car park is 400 yards down Leys Lane, which is half a mile north-west of Little Smeaton on the minor road towards Darrington. Leys Lane is marked with a 'no through road' sign.

One of the features of the reserve is its limestone crags. Those within the woodlands may be cool and shaded in part, but the top of the south-facing cliffs with its thin soils bakes in the summer sun and provides a home for the only Yorkshire site for Truncatellina cylindrica. The snail is at present only known from a very small site within the reserve, but it may also occur on several of the other south-facing crags which occur along the valley sides.

Joint meeting with Yorkshire Naturalists' Union.
