Sunday 26 September : ASTONBURY WOOD near Stevenage, HERTS

This ancient semi-natural woodland is currently for sale, and the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust are trying to raise funds to buy the lease. It is the richest site for fungi in Hertfordshire and is recognised nationally as an Important Fungus Area – site 61 in the preliminary assessment of the best sites in the United Kingdom. Records of fungi start in 1990 and record 750 species. In recent years we have not been able to meet there, so we are delighted to have the opportunity this year. The wood is off the A602 southeast of Stevenage, approximate grid ref: TL276213; exact meeting / parking place to be advised.
