The meeting, being held jointly with the Sorby Invertebrate Group, will study and record the lichens (and invertebrates) of this limestone dale which lies just to the east of Buxton.

It is a shallow dale with limestone outcrops and boulders, short and rank grassland, scrub and woodland. Part of the dale is designated SSSI.

As usual people with all levels of experience are welcome. Strong footwear and waterproof clothing are recommended. Bring a hand-lens, your usual field kit, lunch and drinks.
