We'll be meeting at 10:00am at All Saint's church, Clive at SJ51462408.
There are only a few parking places alongside Drawwell Street, just north of the Church. Otherwise the access will be very easy into the churchyard for the first part of the field meeting. The churchyard is a great setting under the spire of All Saints’ church. The church dates back to the 12th century, and was fully restored in 1887, with the spire added in 1894. The church also has a refurbished peal of six bells – the heaviest in the county, which are regularly rung. We will be exploring the botany of the churchyard and the outing will be a mix of recording and training.
After the churchyard the going gets moderately hilly up Grinshill. The hill is Triassic Sandstone which was quarried for building.
