Llanymynech Rocks SSSI

Straddling the border between England and Wales, the reserve lies at the southern end of the carboniferous limestone outcrop that stretches from Anglesey and the Great Orme at Llandudno. From the early 19th century until the end of the First World War, the site was a busy limestone quarry; since then peace has returned and nature has crept in to steal it back for herself.

This is a site which is the home for a number of our West Midland BAP species and generally a great place for butterflies.

Species: Pearl-borderd Fritillary, Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, Grizzled Skipper, Dingy Skipper, Wall , Green Hairstreak and White-Letter Hairdstreak

A place well worth visiting.

It is both a Shropshire and Montgomeryshire reserve
