Meet: 10.00 Entrance to Odd Down Park & Ride Car Park. Gr ST 733616. Landranger 172/Explorer 155.
Finish: 12:30.
Focus: Spring flora in ancient woodland.
Description: We will visit Duchy-owned woodland in Englishcombe Parish to note the signs of Spring, especially the ground flora typical of these traditional oak-hazel woodlands, which are still actively coppiced. A generally flat walk with some slopes encompassing a fascinating mixture of industrial archaeology (Fullers earth mining) and ecology. Wellingtons advised because there are many deer in the area, there might be ticks, and also areas can be muddy.
