Langdale Forest and May Moss


Langdale Forest & May Moss
Principally a coniferous forest, Langdale is dissected by several streams and there are numerous 'wet flushes' and springs that add diversity. Within the forest boundary is May Moss, an internationally important mire, where extensive research into the climate and plant history of the North York Moors has been going on for many years.

Wildlife Highlights: Many pairs of nightjars nest in Langdale from early May to August. The bullfinch, a bird rapidly declining in numbers in Britain, is common in coniferous forests and the turtle dove is also a frequent forest nester. Adders, common lizard and slow worm can all be seen in Langdale Forest by the careful (and lucky) observer. Small pearl bordered fritillary butterflies are common, and glow-worms can be seen.

Location: Just west of Scarborough, take the A171 north from Scarborough, follow signs for Hackness, then Langdale End. North of Langdale End follow the narrow lane signed 'Birch Hall'.
