*CANCELLED*Friday Adventure to Anston Stones Woods

26th February 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


We start this walk at Anston Parish Hall in the village of Anston. This walk is shorter than our usual Adventures, but has some challenging terrain.

Anston Stones wood supports a variety of habitats, including woodland, the majority of which is also designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), calcareous grassland, scrub and wetland. The woodland is the second best example of limestone woodland in South Yorkshire.

The limestone grassland within the woods are also of botanical importance. There is also a Geological Trail with good examples of limestone gorges, supporting a variety of rare plants and animals.

Dead Man’s cave is reached via the walkway to the gorge, this cave excavated in the 1960’s revealed ancient flint tools from the ice age and animal bones from animals such reindeer and hyena.

This walk is currently very muddy so be prepared with spare shoes and gaiters if you have them!

A table has been reserved at The Green Bean Coffee Shop and Bistro just up the road, for anyone who would like lunch after the walk.
