Field trip to South Combe Farm (Botany Section)
Sat. 11 June 2022 at 11:00 am
South Combe Farm, Salcombe Regis, is a National Trust tenanted farm held by the Westgate family who have begun working with local environmental and nature organisations to improve and restore the habitats to increase biodiversity. The area was botanically diverse in Victorian times although landscape changes have been extensive since then.
Meet at the car park by the church (SY147887, EX10 0JN takes you 100m past it). Parking is a little limited, so car sharing is encouraged. The best spot is the car park immediately to the south of the parish church, where we will be meeting. There is small National Trust car park on Salcombe Hill (SY138881), but this fills up quite early. There is some extra on road parking by the church and at the war memorial 200m back up the hill.
Non-members are welcome. Bring packed lunch, appropriate footwear and clothing, as well as sufficient water, sun-block, insect repellent or other essentials required for a day outdoors.
Please contact the leader (Organiser, below) if you wish to attend – meeting details can sometimes change at short notice and if the weather forecast looks poor the meeting may have to be cancelled. You should also check with the leader if you wish to bring your dog.
