Going up Deep Dale
Going up Deep Dale
The path from White Lodge car park, on the A6, goes in a south west direction. Later in spring the sides of the dale, particularly the north facing (left side) will be full of flowers. Early purple orchids and cowslips will be followed by
species such as meadow saxifrage, common rock-rose and kidney vetch.

Towards the end of the summer a number of late-flowering species begin to bloom in abundance including Devilís-bit scabious and grass-of-Parnassus.

The reserve is also home to a large number of butterfly species including green hairsteak, dingy skipper and dark green fritillary.
