Frieth, Fining Wood and Moorend Common
Wednesday June 8 @ 10:15 am - 1:00 pm
Leader: Jim Wills
Meet at Frieth Village Hall, 100m south of the church (SU796902). If the hall car park is full, park nearby in the wider parts of the main street. The 3 mile walk through Chiltern countryside has a few short steep gradients but no stiles. We walk north from Frieth along hedgerows and woodland edges to ancient woodland at Fining Wood, then south to the contrasting habitats of Moor Common and Moor Copse, and finally to Moorend Common, a SSSI on a London Clay outlier with wet grassland fed by acidic water sources, supporting species not commonly found in the Chilterns.
