Summer excursions

As well as the monthly field studies visits to sites in central Cambridge, Jonathan has arranged a couple of evening visits.

On Thursday June 30 we will visit Magog Down and on Thursday, July 28 the destination will be Wandlebury.

The Magog Trust bought 66 hectares of arable land near Wandlebury in 1969 and have been converting it back to chalk grassland and enhancing it for nature conservation ever since.

Wandlebury Country Park is owned and managed by Cambridge Past Present and Future. It includes an Iron Age hillfort and the stables from an 18th century mansion.

Both sites provide many opportunities for walks and are rich in wildlife, with areas of chalk grassland, woodland and other habitats.

Jonathan will send details of these meetings nearer the time to those on the CNHS mailing lists .
