Scoska Wood

Scoska Wood NNR is a strip of ash woodland and pasture on the slopes of Littondale - the valley of the River Skirfare - between the villages of Litton and Arncliffe. The underlying Carboniferous Limestone has had a major influence on the reserve's plant life. Woodland clings to the limestone scars and rocky slopes and merges into herb-rich neutral pasture below.
