Dorset: Open Afternoon At The Terrace Meadow SNCI

Dorset: Open Afternoon At The Terrace Meadow SNCI
Sunday 29th June 2014, 2.00pm-4.30pm
Sherborne

The Terrace Meadow is a fascinating patch of limestone grassland adjacent to Sherborne’s Terrace Playing Fields sports facilities. It is of particular interest as the soil is unusual for the area, and supports flowers (including orchids), butterflies and other species not generally seen in the locality.

From 2.00 pm join us for a guided walk, with flower and insect identification sessions. Tea will be available.

Park in the Terrace Playing Fields Car Park (map reference ST 641 156), signposted off the A352 just south of Sherborne and follow the footpath back towards the town through the patch of newly planted trees and up a few steps (map reference ST 637 156).
