Nowt plain about Plain Quarry, tha nus! (June 24th 2011)

NOWT PLAIN ABOUT PLAIN QUARRY, THA NUS! (June 24th 2011)

To the old Plain Quarry Car Park at Dalton,
To call on the good "Maiden Pink",
Its sometime now since I saw you last,
Its time to come and give you a wink!

Still looking for that "Self Heal" special,
It first made its mark in Dalton,
Its white, and far different and never been seen,
Since last time, two centuries been...

Another special in this prime spot,
A place its rightly made it's plot,
It looks straight down from its crag above,
And its called the Fairy Foxglove.
