Leaders: Jeff Blincow and Keith Alexander
The main BENHS saproxylic group meeting will be at the Yardley Chase Training Area. This is an MOD base about 6 miles south-east of Northampton in the extended Salcey Forest – Yardley Chase ancient forest. The area has been shown to be of outstanding interest for saproxylic insects and so there should be plenty for everyone to see. The Training Area is on the road between Denton and Horton; the entrance is signposted Yardley Chase CTC at SP 83106 55741. All communications are through Jeff Blincow who is a member of the Yardley Chase Conservation Team. Access is by prior booking only but numbers are not limited.
