YWT Globe Flower Wood - 10 August 2013

Near Malham in the corner of a field lies the tiny flower-filled Globe Flower Wood. From Malham village head north keeping Malham Cove on your right. After a couple of miles bear left at a junction and then the site is just before the next right turn to Arncliffe, adjacent to a cattle grid. We parked on the road side just south of the site towards Malham. Too late in the year for Globe Flowers, the small site which is viewed over the dry stone wall is stuffed with stacks of wild flowers, including Meadowsweet, Great Burnet and Water Avens. The Trust keeps the Willows and Sycamores from spreading too much and this little gem shows what could be commonplace in the Dales if the whole place was farmed differently. Visit in July for the Globe Flowers. A delightful little spot.
