Meet expert Johnny Turner to see new discoveries and follow in the footsteps of the old botanists in this scenic valley long known for its Bryophyte flora. Johnny is a brilliant communicator.

Meet by the warden’s hut in the Midgehole top carpark at the bottom of the valley. 10.30 for 10.45. The National Trust charges about £3.50 for parking but there are buses from Hebden Bridge. Donation to HSS welcome, suggested £1 members £2 non-members under 16s free. Bring packed lunch, a damp-proof sitting sheet and dress warmly for a non-strenuous ramble. (Approx. 3 miles.)
A hand lens would enhance the experience and any spares would be greatly appreciated.
