A woodland home to rare ferns and lichen
Essential bridge repair notice from w/c 7th March 2022: Essential bridge repairs are due to be carried out in March at Hareshaw Linn. We anticipate this work will be carried out w/c 7th March for one week, weather allowing. Confirmed dates of the closure will be announced soon. There will still be access as far as the first bridge during the closure period.
Visit Hareshaw Linn and take a magical walk through an ancient woodland, crossing no less than six bridges to reach a beautiful nine-metre high waterfall.
This Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) is designated for its rare ferns and lichen. More than 300 different types of mosses, liverworts and lichen can be found at Hareshaw Linn.
The oak, hazel, elm and ash trees that grow here are great for wildlife. Keep a look out for red squirrels, great spotted woodpeckers, redstarts, dippers, badgers and Daubenton’s bats.
