NW: North Cumbria

July 20 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

Orton Moss, Cumbria, and in the afternoon Roger Golding’s garden at Bowness-on-Solway.

Meet at Great Orton village, NY 3298 5422 at 10.30. Bring a packed lunch. Wellies are recommended, as part of the site is wet woodland. The main target is some impressive large old plants of the Royal Fern, Osmunda regalis, but we should see other species there. Orton Moss is a Cumbria Wildlife Trust reserve. The reserve is also known for Willow Tits, Woodcock and the uncommon grass Calamagrostis canescens (Purple Small-reed) which grows near the Osmunda.

Park in Great Orton village – it’s possible to park close to start of the footpath, but please be considerate of local access for cars and farm vehicles.

In the afternoon we will visit my garden at Bowness-on-Solway to see how the garden is developing five years on from moving here. Afternoon tea will be served!
Address: Fell View, Bowness-on-Solway, CA7 5AF. Grid ref: NY 2227 6271.

There is some on-street parking in Bowness, but the streets are very narrow – be careful not to block access for large farm vehicles, camper vans, etc. There is a small pay car park in the village centre, and a free car park at the west end of the village (5 minutes’ walk).
