Winskill Stones Nature Reserve

The well-known gardener Geoff Hamilton was a great supporter of the campaign to stop people buying limestone pavement to make rockeries from.

When he died, this important area of limestone pavement in the National Park was bought by Plantlife International and the reserve dedicated to his memory. Read more about the reserve on the Plantlife website.
