Three bryologists met at Chester Meadows to investigate its moss and liverwort flora. We weren’t sure what to expect but were hopeful of finding some interesting epiphytes given the riverside location and abundance of mature trees. As it turned out, most of the trees were devoid of bryo-life, the weather was horrible, we were freezing and we managed only ten species before giving up and going for a coffee to warm up! You win some, you lose some. I am quite sure there are interesting things to be found at this site, just not on this visit.
