Field Meeting at British Gypsum, Barrow

Our next field meeting will be held on Saturday, 16th June at the British Gypsum Works, Barrow on Soar. The works are at the end of a 1 mile long drive off Paudy Lane between Seagrave and Barrow on Soar. Meet in the car park at SK595166 at 10.30 a.m. Please note that because of the size of the site and the one off nature of the opportunity to visit, the finish time is extended to 5 p.m.

The meeting will begin with a brief health and safety induction, and we will be escorted throughout our visit by Luke Menzel, Environmental Co-ordinator. This will be a unique opportunity to record in this otherwise inaccessible area, which includes the very interesting verges of Paudy Lane, a small lake and the wilder areas surrounding the works. We will record as much of monad SK5916 as we can, but in a leisurely fashion with plenty of time to work on our ID skills

Booking is absolutely essential and numbers are strictly limited. Please book by email to:
