Visit the Dales


Southerscales Nature Reserve

This stunning nature reserve is perched on the side of Ingleborough. It is owned and managed by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. It is particularly important for its large areas of spectacular limestone pavement. The cracks or grykes as they are known, hide a wide variety of special lime-loving plants. The limestone grassland surrounding it is full of butterflies in the spring and summer. Find out more about the wildlife on this reserve on our Nature in the Dales website.
