Aston Upthorpe – 3rd June 2007

RDNHS group at Aston Upthorpe downsIn a summer notable only for its terrible, wet weather it was surprising that we had wonderful warm, sunny weather on the RDNHS trip to Aston Upthorpe downs.

The downs are famous for their stands of Juniper and very small populations of Burnt-Tip orchids and Pasque Flowers, amongst a very wide range of plants typical of chalk downland.
