The BBS will be exploring the county of Merioneth (Vice-county 48) which has everything from high, volcanic mountains to the great species-poor uplands of the Migneint. There is a coastal strip with dune systems and saltmarshes as well as numerous lakes and fantastic hidden river valleys. There are even the remains of a Carboniferous limestone quarry and a few scattered lime-kilns on the Ordovician 'limestone'.
We will be based at Plas Caerdeon, which is an Outdoor Education Centre in North Wales owned and run by Liverpool Hope University. It is situated between Dolgellau and Barmouth on the A496 (postcode LL42 1TH).
Contact Margaret Crittenden for more details.
Payment for accommodation at Plas Caerdeon, registration and/or the Society dinner should be made via PayPal (check the BBS website for more details).
