The majestic Grass Wood lies just north of Grassington village on the Coniston Road. It is easy to find by following the road north out of the village and there are a couple of small car parks next to the road. August is a quiet time in the woods as birds have all but finished nesting and there is little in the way of song. We explored the trails enjoying the plants including Great Burnet growing in the clearings on the limestone terraces. Higher up, occasional gaps in the canopy revealed great views across the Dales to the west.
