MM: Native ferns and horsetails at Greenfield

July 6 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

A revision or training day on native ferns and horsetails jointly with local naturalists including a couple of Dryopteris affinis taxa to keep members talking! Leader Mike Canaway.
Meet at the entrance to Friezland Riding Arena and park to one side (if there is no equestrian event taking place, we can use the larger car park lower down – to be advised on the day). For map and directions see https://www.odrc.co.uk/friezland-arena/ and scroll down to the map. Coming from the Mossley direction on the A635 into Greenfield, look out for Noon Sun Close, which is on the right, and the entrance is first left after that, at an acute angle. On Street View go to 153, Manchester Road, Greenfield and rotate the view and you will see the entrance opposite this address. There is an option to have refreshments at the Royal George but it can be very busy in summer. There is a beer garden area outside.

  1. Hello. Is anyone coming from the Manchester direction? I don’t have a car but could get as far as Oldham fairly easily on the trams. Thanks in advance. First timer here!

  2. It would be best to get the train from Manchester Piccadilly to Greenfield. Oldham is the wrong side of the hill. From Greenfield station go down the hill round the bends past Tesco on the left until you come to the Pennine bridleway. Turn right onto it and cross the minor road past the tennis club and it will lead you to the horse arena. Meet there
