Winskill Stones Nature Reserve

The Winskill Stones Nature Reserve lies above the village of Stainforth. It is home to an amazing section of limestone pavement.

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.
