The Lye Valley – a Unique Fenland

Sunday 3 June at 2.30pm

The Lye Valley in Headington is an internationally rare habitat, a tufa-forming alkaline spring fen. It is home to some very rare species of plants, insects, reptiles and other wildlife. This circular walk, led by Dr Judy Webb, will allow us to see recent improvements and enjoy late spring flowers such as the common spotted orchid. The ground can be boggy so good footwear is advisable for the one and a half-hour walk.
