West Shelvingmea
West Shelvingmea
Small area of upland dry limestone grassland in what is otherwise moorland and rough pasture just east of Shelvingmea Sike. A narrow band of the Carboniferous Jew Limestone lies here just beneath the surface. East Shelvingmea is a similar area to the east along the same band of limestone NY7928 : East Shelvingmea near Cocklake Sike. Drainage from the boggy moorland above these grassland areas goes below the surface via sink-holes on their northern edges. Although a lot less obvious, Long Mea to the north-east was likely to have been a similar feature NY8028 : Limestone grassland at Long Mea
