Site Code: LIN2
This site consists of three sections of the a disused railway. Running through land largely used for arable crops the cuttings and embankments support areas of limestone and rough grassland along with scrub. Limestone grassland is a national priority for nature conservation.
The longer northern sections are particularly good for butterflies. The uncommon small blue and dark green fritillary are present along with dingy skipper, common blue and marbled white. Wildflowers include the tall colourful oxeye daisy, knapweeds and field scabious along with cowslip, marjoram and green-winged orchids.
