Adiantum capillus-veneris in Hampshire

On a Wessex meeting in August 2015, Jo and Ashley Basil showed me Adiantum capillus-veneris, which they had recently found, growing on a railway bridge in Sway (see below)
In March 2016 I found a small Adiantum capillus-veneris (see below) growing at the bottom of a railway bridge in Buriton
These finds led me to go to discover the other known sites in Hampshire
This is a photographic record of what I found
Please contact me if you know of any other sites in Britain, particularly near me in the south
My thanks to Martin Rand, Fred Rumsey and Jo and Ashley Basil
