Rossendale Plantlife


"The grass was June high and had come up with a rush, a massed entanglement of species, crested with flowers and spears of wild wheat, and coiled with clambering vetches, the whole of it humming with blundering bees and flickering with scarlet butterflies." - Laurie Lee, from "Cider with Rosie".

There is a rich variety of plantlife in the local area. Here are pictures of some of the more common ones.
