Arnside Natural History Society Trip to Warton Slag Banks

Lynne Farrell will lead this trip to Warton Slag Banks.

Meet at 10.30am at Cotes Stones Farm layby. 

SD486714; what3words/birthdays.vase.destined

Walking from the layby, along the footpath and track, down towards the stock car racing area (which only operates at weekends) and perhaps as far as the point at SD473713.

Bring a packed lunch and drink, as we could spend many hours down there on a pleasant day. Strong footwear recommended as slag banks are rough terrain.

The slag banks and adjacent saltmarsh provide a rich variety of plants, some uncommon in the AONB (Natural Landscape area). The flowery banks are also good for moths, butterflies, and fungi. We will also see various birds.

Co-ordinator: Lynne Farrell 01524 761064.

Please bring a packed lunch for all the field trips and wear suitable clothing and footwear.
