Sunday, 29 May 2016 – Field Meeting at Bolehill Recreation Ground, Crookes.

Leader – Roger Butterfield.

Meet 10:00 am at the entrance of Bolehill Recreation Ground on Northfield Avenue, Crookes. OS grid reference SK32808816. Postcode S10 1QN. The nearest bus route is the 52/52a that runs from the city centre to Hillsborough/Wisewood, via Broomhill and Crookes.

Join us for a Sunday morning stroll around Bolehill Recreation Ground. This popular park is well known for its impressive views across the Rivelin Valley to Stannington and beyond. Part of the park has been designated as a Local Wildlife Site by Sheffield City Council. A mosaic of heathland, scrub and grassland supports a diverse range of flora and fauna. There are also a few rock outcrops that may be of geological interest.

Although this is a public park, some of the paths are rough and muddy so please wear suitable footwear. A few of the paths are steeply sloping too.

Non-members are welcome to attend, but are not covered by the Sorby Natural History Society’s insurance policy.

We will aim to finish around 12 noon.
