Leader: Mike Edwards (Member of The Lynchmere Society)
In 2012 our Society had given a donation for the purchasing of Hazel saplings. The walk passed the plantation on “Little Common” where, despite the poor acid soil, the trees had reached a good height and were covered in yellow catkins.
Mike gave help to identify trees in winter: Silver and Downy Birch, Rowan, Ash, Oak and self-seeded Amelanchier. He recounted the uses in times past of Gorse, Bracken, Heather, Purple Moor Grass and Soft Rush.
