Herbs of Gobions Woods

A short survey of flowering plants was undertaken in Gobions on April 16, 2002. A walk from the Gobions Open Space car park to Gobions woods recorded 49 species in flower. The study was undertaken as part of a Workers' Educational Association (WEA) class run by Brenda Harold. The findings are published in the Gobions Woodland Trust Friends' Report.
