Clapgate Pits

Clapgate Pits is a disused quarry near Broughton, Lincolnshire.[1] It provides an environment for several plants which are rare in Lincolnshire: pale St John's-Wort, Squinancywort and Wall Germander. Until 1969 it was the most northerly site in Britain for Pasqueflower but theses plants were apparently dug up by vandals.[1]
