Pamber Forest is a large ancient semi-natural woodland north of Basingstoke on sand and clay. The north part merges with the heathland of Silchester Common and is fairly acid, but the south part is more basic. There are several streams to explore as well as tracks, open areas and some wet woodland.
There are very few records from Pamber Forest in the BBS database, although the Flora of Hampshire says that Hookeria lucens, a rare plant in N Hants, is present. Wellington boots would be desirable.
Meet at 10.00am at the parking area on Impstone Road, Pamber Heath, SU6166 6212. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend. The meeting may be postponed if the weather is bad.
